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.

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.
