Life Flight is a charity providing Emergency Air Services.

Our Wellington-based Westpac Rescue Helicopter team ensures people can be rescued when the mission is critical or the location is challenging. Life Flight also operates a nationwide air ambulance service transferring critically ill patients, including children and premature babies, to specialist care they urgently require.

We operate a 24/7 service flying approximately 1300 missions a year. To date 27,000 people have been helped by Life Flight in their hour of need. For many of those the emergency flight saved their life
