LifeFlight is a world leader in aeromedical care and Australia's most diversified service with both a fixed and rotary wing fleet.
We help seriously ill and injured patients around Australia and the world to quickly get the medical care they need.
From rapid response, to inter-facility transfers our team of more than 400 staff members, including aviation crew, support staff, and over 100 doctors are a lifeline to vulnerable individuals.
Across Australia LifeFlight doctors attend to more than 10 patients a day.
As a leading Australian charity we operate 13 rescue helicopters and three air ambulance jets across 12 locations. Eight of these are LifeFlight’s own aeromedical bases. LifeFlight also assists Retrieval Services Queensland with doctors, when required, on fixed wing aeromedical services, including inter-hospital patient transfers performed by the Royal Flying Doctor Service to and from regional centres such as Brisbane, Bundaberg and Townsville.
Our staff are specially trained in pre-hospital retrieval medicine through our internationally recognised training academy.
LifeFlight has flown 45,000 critical rescue missions over the past 36 years.
We serve both the community and industry clients, operating a charitable service and ‘profit for purpose’ commercial enterprises that helps fund our charitable activity. Surplus profit from our social enterprises are used to make sure our community helicopters remain on standby 24 hours a day, everyday of the year.
