In 1986 a group of doctors had a shared vision: to create a better aeromedical retrieval service in Australia.
They believed a not for profit, community funded helicopter and fixed wing service would benefit severely injured trauma patients needing rapid transport from an accident scene to hospital & very sick patients requiring inter-hospital transfers to improve recovery prospects.
From this vision, CareFlight was born.
Over the following 27 years the organisation evolved and expanded. Today CareFlight manages a fleet of five rotary wing aircraft and six fixed wing aircraft and four aero-medical jets.
We operate from seven bases in three states/territories to destinations throughout Australia and beyond.
