The Life Flight program at Stanford is staffed by a specially trained crew of two Flight Nurses and a Pilot. The nurses all have backgrounds in critical care and emergency medicine.

Stanford Life Flight flies in an EC 145 helicopter that can fly under both visual and instrument flight rules, allowing us to respond 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.
