RACQ LIFEFLIGHT RESCUE HELICOPTERS

Everyday, RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crews treat seriously ill and critically injured patients, whilst providing rapid-response airlifts to hospitals around the state. 

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue has made a difference to the lives of thousands of Queenslanders. 

Aeromedical intervention can significantly increase a patient’s chance of survival, greatly reduce the possibility of permanent disability and assist in a shorter recovery time.

From the outback to the ocean, LifeFlight’s helicopter network provides a blanket of care for Queensland families.

Rural and remote communities, in particular, rely on the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Community helicopters to bring the hospital to them in their hour of need.

In the 2018-19 financial year, our iconic blue and yellow helicopters took to the skies for more than 4,600 hours, bringing lifesaving aeromedical treatment to over 2,000 patients across Queensland and northern New South Wales.

As a charity, LifeFlight relies on support from the Queensland community to fund the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue community service.

With help from our dedicated supporters and generous corporate partners, we can continue to save Queensland lives.

WE BELIEVE...
....that every person in Queensland should have equal access to emergency, lifesaving aeromedical care, at no cost.

My son was rescued by RACQ LifeFlight Rescue from Warrick to Toowoomba Hospital after a motorcycle accident. I cannot thank the rescue team enough for the amazing service and care they offered my son. To the doctors, nurses & pilots, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
