Requirements and restrictions apply and are listed in the specific sections below and in documents and/or forms related to each program.

Unique Opportunities

  • Our customers may also request to schedule PR (non-training) events including:
    • Our helicopter flying to an event at a fire department, EMS, law enforcement, or dispatch agency or hospital in our primary service area and staying for one hour
    • A group coming to our hangar for a tour (these tours may also be requested by student or community groups, but are always subject to approval and helicopter/crew availability)
    • A presentation to a group about Flight For Life (these presentations may be requested by a community group, and do NOT include bringing the helicopter; they are also subject to approval and staff availability)

All PR (non-training) Events are subject to helicopter availability and may be cancelled due to a patient flight, weather or maintenance. Requests are limited to the types of agencies listed above who are within our primary service area and are subject to specific guidelines and approval. Appropriate landing zone security must be provided by FFL trained fire /EMS personnel.

Please remember that filling out the form is a Request Only – it does not guarantee availability or approval.

Safety Inservices, Drills, Mock Scenes, Pre-Prom Events, Disaster or Mass Casualty Drills are part of our outreach education and training and are NOT considered PRs.
