Celebrating 25 Years of Safely Caring for and Transporting the People of Maine.

From Maine. Across Maine. For Maine.

LifeFlight of Maine is the state’s only air ambulance service. Over the past 25 years, LifeFlight has safely cared for more than 36,000 patients, one life at a time, from every community in Maine.

LifeFlight of Maine makes second chances possible.

When the public thinks of LifeFlight, they picture the signature green, white, and gold aircraft, and the crew members who transport critically ill patients. But before the medical crew can do their work, Jeremy Bean and his team are doing theirs. As MedComm’s Communication Supervisor, Bean has been orchestrating transports for LifeFlight for 15 years. 

He and his crew work 12 hours shifts, 24/7, dispatching nearly 50,000 calls a year from the Communications Center at LifeFlight’s Bangor base. 

LifeFlight is a charitable nonprofit organization supported by its originating parent organizations, Northern Light Health and Central Maine Healthcare. LifeFlight’s aviation services are provided by its wholly owned subsidiary, LifeFlight Aviation Services. 

LifeFlight is licensed by the state of Maine, is a participating provider with Medicare, MaineCare, and most major insurance carriers, and maintains compliance with applicable state and federal laws. 

For information on compliance with 49 U.S.C. Section 43202, please visit DOT Aviation Consumer Protection Division. For information on the No Surprises Act, please see our Patient Resources Page.

LifeFlight’s vision for Maine is a place in which every person, in every community, has access to critical care and medical transport when needed. LifeFlight does this by working with its EMS partners to transform the critical care transport medicine system into an integrated, high-quality, patient-centered system worthy of the public’s trust.
