Life Flight is more than just helicopters, airplanes, and ambulances. Life Flight's aircraft are essentially mobile intensive care units. We bring highly specialized emergency equipment and medical personnel to critically ill or injured patients in remote areas or accident scenes where time is of the essence.
Life Flight transports patients by helicopter, fixed wing aircraft, or ground. Our skilled medical crews consist of highly trained and experienced nurses, paramedics, respiratory therapists and physicians who provide patients with the best possible care during transport.
Life Flight has several bases along the Wasatch Front and one in Southern Utah. Helicopters are stationed at McKay Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo, and in Salt Lake City, providing support for both Intermountain Medical Center and Primary Children's Medical Center. Life Flight's helicopter service areas are defined by an approximately 150-mile radius extending from each of the rotor wing bases.
Life Flight operates three Beechcraft B200 King Air fixed wing aircraft, two based at Salt Lake International Airport and one at the St. George Airport.
A specially designated neonatal critical care ambulance and driver are stationed at Primary Children's Medical Center, in partnership with Gold Cross Ambulance Services, to transport critically ill infants. Primary Children's Life Flight Neonatal team provides specialized nursing care for the ground unit.
We service areas close to home and far away; our Beechcraft B200 King Air fixed wing aircraft can travel nearly 1,000 miles before refueling and we routinely transport patients from Wyoming, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, and every other western state.
