LifeFlight introduces new measures to improve flight efficiency (WABI 5)
September 22, 2022
(WABI 5) — LifeFlight of Maine is making new advances in flight efficiency that may become the blueprint for medical flights across the nation.
LifeFlight officials say Maine is one of the most difficult states to fly in due to rural, mountainous terrain and the presence of ice at high altitudes.
New technology and training will allow LifeFlight to travel at lower altitudes along more predictable routes, improving access to thousands of Mainers in need.
The new routes are similar to aerial versions of major roads like I-95, 295, Route 1 and more.
