Life Flight adds long distance transport capability to its fleet

Life Flight Network has purchased a Dassault Falcon 50, and is now able to transport critical patients over long distances, the organization said.

The mid-sized jet, based in Aurora, OR, went into service in early May 2017.

With the speed, size, and capability of the Falcon 50, patients can be transported more efficiently and comfortably, both domestically and internationally. The aircraft is also large enough to accommodate family members and their luggage.

Patients in need of long distance transportation beyond Life Flight Network´s traditional service area of the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West now have another option.

Life Flight Network flights are staffed with highly trained pilots and medical personnel, including a critical care nurse and flight paramedic or flight respiratory therapist to provide ICU level care during each flight.

Life Flight Network, a US not-for-profit air medical service, is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) and the National Accreditation Alliance of Medical Transport Applications (NAAMTA).

Life Flight Network has administrative offices in Aurora, Oregon and is owned by a consortium of Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, Oregon Health & Science University, Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, and Providence Health System.
