Regular training is always a crucial part of our operations at #RACQ LifeFlight Rescue. The Mount Isa crew recently put four Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) Flight Paramedics through their paces, with some winching exercises.

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”
