LifeFlight is a world leader in aeromedical care and Australia’s most diversified air ambulance service, operating both a fixed-wing and rotary-wing fleet.

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue’s rotary-wing fleet is made up of ten helicopters:

3x AW139 helicopters

3x Bell412 helicopters

1x BK117 helicopter

1x Eurocopter AS350 helicopter

Two additional LifeFlight helicopters (2x AW139 helicopters), one each in Toowoomba and Roma, operate under a contract with a consortium of gas companies (Arrow Energy, Origin Energy, Queensland Gas Company, and Santos).

Typically, on board an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter is a pilot, co-pilot, Critical Care Doctor and flight nurse. Essentially, RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopters are flying intensive care units.

LifeFlight’s fixed-wing fleet includes three Air Ambulance Jets:

1x Bombardier Challenger 604

2x Learjet 45
