Flight For Life® Colorado - Air Medical Transport Across the Rocky Mountain Region
Flight For Life® Colorado provides critical care transport with five helicopters (operating within a 120-mile radius of our four Colorado operations bases), three ambulances and three airplanes. Equipped with the industry's most current technology and experienced, knowledgeable team, we transport patients across several states in the Rocky Mountain Region and assist search and rescue agencies with specialized services including aerial search support and our Avalanche Deployment Program.
Flight For Life® Colorado began in 1972 with a single Alouette III helicopter, based at St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver and was the first hospital-based air ambulance program in the United States. From its humble beginnings, it has grown to be a regional air medical and critical care transport program responding to nine states in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Flight For Life® Colorado transports patients to the most appropriate hospital, operating within the Colorado trauma system rules for trauma patients. Our most frequent destination is The Children's Hospital in Denver, but patients are also transported to several hospitals along the front range and the western slope. We assist many search and rescue agencies and offer specialized services to them including aerial search support and our avalanche rescue programs. Our transport capabilities include the specialty areas of neonatal, high risk obstetrical, intraaortic balloon pump and mountain rescue transports.
When a patient is in need of emergent transport financial status is not a consideration, and Flight Flight For Life® Colorado responds regardless of the patient's ability to pay. Because of this, and the high costs of our aviation services, our operating expenses are high. We depend on corporate and private donations to support our capital equipment needs.
