LifeFlight Provides Critical Care Transport Throughout Maine

LifeFlight’s vision for Maine is a place in which every person, in every community, has access to critical care and medical transport when they need it.

We do this by working with our EMS partners to transform the critical care transport medicine system into an integrated, high quality, patient-centered system worthy of the public’s trust.

We work with our parent organizations, Central Maine Healthcare and Eastern Maine Healthcare, and our aviation operator, SevenBar Aviation, to achieve this mission and maintain a strong commitment to safety.

Islesboro Crossing raises more than $250,000 for LifeFlight of Maine

For the 5th annual Islesboro Crossing, a 5k ocean swim that benefits LifeFlight of Maine, 2017 was a record-breaking year with 256 swimmers and paddlers helping to raise more than a quarter of a million dollars. All funds raised from the swim, which was held on August 19, will support LifeFlight’s efforts to replace the organization’s two older helicopters. The two aircraft, nicknamed Echo Mike and Charlie Mike after their tail numbers, have been transporting patients in Maine since 2005.

Maine's newest helicopter has arrived at its home base in Lewiston; transported its first patient less than an hour after going into service

On Tuesday, May 9, at a little after 3 o’clock in the afternoon, Maine’s newest emergency medical helicopter flew over the bridge in Kittery and crossed into the state for the first time. The number of requests for LifeFlight’s service has been rapidly increasing over the last several years, making it clear that in order to care for everyone who needed us, LifeFlight required more aircraft. In 2015, a fixed wing airplane was added to the fleet and now, a third helicopter.
