The Life Flight Fleet

The Life Flight fleet consists of six EC-145 twin-engine helicopters covering five bases. Each Life Flight helicopter  is capable of transporting  two patients and is equipped with Packed Red Blood cells, Liquid Plasma, ultrasound, hemostatic gauze, pelvic binders, the JETT tourniquet (created by Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and McGovern Medical School at UTHealth physicians), and ISTAT (in-flight lab analysis).

Life Flight also regularly deploys specialty flights staffed with pediatric nurses, neonatal nurses and perfusionists for IABP and ECMO flights.

The fleet also includes fixed-wing aircraft and is available for patient transportation around the world.

Medical Team at Life Flight undergoes extensive training in Critical care transport, which includes altitude physiology and fixed-wing safety. We can fly patients from the Houston area to the destination of choice, bring patients back to Texas from overseas, or follow any other itinerary needed to serve your needs.
