A Symbol of Our Commitment to Our Region
FlightCare is Enloe Medical Center’s air ambulance service. It touches the lives of many by responding to emergencies within a 75-mile radius of Enloe. We fly in patients from Butte, Tehama, Glenn, Plumas, Colusa, Sierra, Yuba and Lassen counties.
FlightCare is supported by a team of emergency and critical care experts. The helicopter flies at an average speed of 135 mph and responds to an average of three calls per day.
FlightCare has transported 19,000 patients since 1985, saving countless lives. It was one of the first three air medical programs in the country to become fully certified with the Federal Aviation Commission to use night-vision goggles.
The FlightCare Membership Program assures that members will not be billed for out-of-pocket expenses when FlightCare or a reciprocating emergency air service transports them.
Enloe FlightCare is affiliated with the Association of Air Medical Membership Programs (AAMMP), which means FlightCare membership benefits transfer to the sister programs.

Enloe FlightCare is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Air Medical Transport System (CAMTS). This recognizes that the medical transport rotor-wing service provides highly skilled flight nurse and paramedic teams to care for adult and pediatric patients.
The FlightCare helicopter is equipped with a 12-lead EKG machine as part of Enloe Medical Center’s STEMI Designation. This helps us provide timely care for patients suffering from the most urgent, life-threatening heart attacks.
