Flight For Life is a pioneer in the field of air medical transport.  Flight For Life began in 1972 with a single Alouette III helicopter, based at St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver. It was the first hospital-based medical helicopter program in the country.  From its humble beginnings, it has grown to be a regional program responding to nine states.  Over 300 flight programs around the country and around the world have since been modeled on this concept. More than 72,000 flights later, Flight for Life’s leadership in the field continues.
