The boy, who was accompanied on the flight by his mother, was suffering seizures which doctors suspected were caused by the brain tumour.
The Townsville-based Lear 45 jet flew from its home base with a flight nurse to Rockhampton to pick up the LifeFlight Critical Care Doctor, before flying to Moranbah to pick up the patient.
The jet then flew the 62-minute trip to Brisbane with the boy and mother, arriving around 3am this morning where the patient was transported to a Brisbane hospital.
2016-17 was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,252 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.
