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 Northern Light Health, and our aviation operator, SevenBar Aviation, to achieve this mission and maintain a strong commitment to safety.

Maine’s Emergency Care System

At the heart of EMS is one of the most profound promises one person can make to someone in need with a medical emergency… ”If you call us, we will come.” 24/7/365. In Maine, a 911 operator picks up a the phone and tones an EMS crew once every two minutes. That tone starts in motion a complex system comprised of paid, call, and volunteer EMS clinicians responding to the their neighbors in need. But the emergency care system we ALL rely on is increasingly fragile, especially for our rural EMS agencies and hospital emergency departments.

LifeFlight welcomes new aircraft as part of a fleet upgrade and standardization project

LifeFlight recently purchased two new, state-of-the-art helicopters to transport critically ill and injured patients in Maine. The Agusta 109 SP model aircraft have a greater weight carrying capacity, more workspace for patient care, and can fly faster than our older aircraft. The new helicopters, tail numbers N901LF and N901XM, are part of a larger project to upgrade and standardize LifeFlight’s frontline fleet of helicopters.
