We need your help to expand our flight training program and fund a critical upgrade to our flight simulator. Donate to the Virtual Skies campaign today.

Our Mission

At Life Flight Network, we believe training, learning, and preparation are the pillars of safe operations.

One of the state-of-the-art tools we use to train our pilots is the Bell 407 GXi flight simulator, built by FRASCA. This highly technical piece of equipment allows our pilots to practice flying in varying weather conditions, terrain, and emergency scenarios, enhancing our ability to provide leading-edge care to the communities we serve.

Our Training Protocols

When it comes to continuing education for our pilots, we ensure that our training protocols exceed those mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) because our commitment to safety and excellence means going above and beyond.

While our current technology has greatly increased operational safety, associated training hours do not count toward FAA training requirements. This means we must take aircraft out of service to complete training flights, reducing the availability of these assets for lifesaving transports. 

Our Goal

To improve efficiencies, reduce out-of-service time for our aircraft, and improve the quality of our pilot training even further, we are seeking to purchase an upgrade for our simulator that would allow training hours to count toward FAA requirements. 

This upgrade is estimated at $2.1 million and will include an advanced mobile cockpit, allowing us to practice both standard maneuvers and high-risk procedures in a safe and controlled environment.

A donation to our Virtual Skies campaign is tax deductible and an investment in Life Flight Network’s mission of saving lives.

We appreciate the generous support from individuals like you who feel compelled to contribute, regardless of the donation amount. Your decision to support our organization is truly valued and makes a difference in the communities we serve.

Donate today and support our lifesaving mission.
