Life Flight Medical Teams


All ambulance and rescue missions on our Westpac Rescue Helicopter have an Intensive Care paramedic on board. Their job includes being winched out of the helicopter during rescue missions and providing life-saving care to patients.

Our paramedics are among the most highly skilled in the country and are supplied through a joint venture with Wellington Free Ambulance.

Flight Nurses and Doctors

The flight nurses and doctors from Wellington Regional Hospital require specialist aero-medical training before joining Life Flight’s team.

They ensure the highest level of care is provided to patients onboard our aircraft.

To be a member of this team requires a high level of skill and experience.
