Emergency Vehicle Fleet

Life Flight Network utilizes numerous aircraft to support operations. Life Flight Network operates under its own FAA Part 135 Air Carrier Certificate. The range of each rotor-wing is approximately 300 nautical miles without refueling, and all rotor-wing aircraft use night vision goggles.

Rotor-Wing

AW119Kx "Koala"

In 2012, Life Flight Network signed an agreement to acquire 15 Leonardo AW119Kx “Koala” helicopters. The first of these aircraft went into service during the summer of 2013. The fleet of Koalas has since grown to 21. Operated by Life Flight Network, the Koala reaches speeds of 175 miles per hour and comes equipped with a state-of-the-art Garmin G-1000H cockpit, night vision goggle capability, satellite weather, synthetic vision, and the capacity to transport two patients or a specialty team, with unencumbered full-body access.

AW109E "Power"

Operated by Life Flight Network, the AW109E “Power” twin-engine helicopter has advanced avionics and is capable of flying under instrument flight rules, making it ideally suited to take advantage of Life Flight Network’s proprietary low-level route structures, pending approval from the FAA.

H135

The H135 twin-engine helicopters are popular aircraft in the air medical industry. Similar to the Leonardo aircraft, the H135 is capable of transporting a specialty team. The rear patient care compartment is separate from the pilot area. The H135 also has an enclosed tail rotor. All H135s in the fleet are operated by Life Flight Network.

Fixed-Wing

PC-12NG

Life Flight Network utilizes eight PC-12 aircraft. The Pilatus offers a large cargo style door, and a large interior space for patient and crew.

Citation CJ4

The Cessna Citation CJ4 is the most recent addition to the Life Flight Network fleet. The CJ4 has increased range and enhanced speed so we can respond to more patients and save more lives. The larger cabin will provide our team with better working space which will assist with patients comfort and care. The Citation CJ4 will be release into service by Fall 2018.

Ground Transportation

Life Flight Network operates a fleet of ambulance in various markets. In addition to our own ambulances, we have excellent working relationships with many local fire and EMS transport agencies.
