Together, We Can Save Lives

What is RACQ LifeFlight Rescue all about?

Patient Story – Peter Gilmore

"LifeFlight saved my life"

Saving Queensland Lives Since 1979

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue has been Queensland’s leading community helicopter service for the past 40 years.

Patient Story – Artie Alley

“The doctor took one look at him and knew that something was a little bit off, but then to my surprise, they said they had called the chopper”

Patient Story – Maddox Porter

“If they didn’t come that day, Maddox wouldn’t have a hand. It’s as simple as that. I will support them forever”

A Day in the Life – Helicopter Co-Pilot

“The best part of my job is flying, and what we get to do when we’re flying”
