Life Flight[edit]

The Stanford Life Flight program began May 1, 1984. Stanford Life Flight flies in an EC 145 helicopter that can fly under both visual and instrument flight rules, allowing for response to calls in nearly any weather. The aircraft will accommodate two patients with two Flight Nurses, or one patient with up to four caregivers, plus the Pilot.[7] During the non-flight time, the flight nurses are available to support the Emergency Department and the ICUs. Stanford Life Flight celebrates 30 years [8]
