Life Flight has a range of aircraft and ground transport available to ensure patients are transported by the most appropriate method available. We own and operate seven helicopters (rotor-wing) and three airplanes (fixed-wing), including one jet, out of our seven bases across the state of Utah. 

We also partner with local ground transport companies when ambulance transport is best for the patient. If ground transport is the only option due to location or weather conditions, our Critical Care and Rural Ground teams are ready. These teams are some of the most highly-trained medical transport personnel in the region. Their training includes more specialization than standard nurse/paramedic skills.
