Flight for Life

Flight for LifeAmerica’s helicopter rescue teams operate in a world of danger and split-second decisions. They are often at the mercy of risky terrain and unpredictable weather, in which a routine flight can become not a “Flight for Life,” but a flight from hell. Patients can come from stranded mountainsides, toxic accidents, automobile wrecks, home fires, and dozens of other emergency situations. Told in their own words, the stories of Flight for Life crews offer a vivid, compelling testimony of what it’s like to be a helicopter pilot; a flight nurse; a paramedic, and even a patient offering and receiving hope; and defying death on every “Flight for Life.”
