Source: Life Flight Network
Life Flight Network (LFN) is planning to base an air medical helicopter at Pappy Boyington Field in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. LFN provides critical care transportation for seriously ill or injured patients throughout the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain West. The Coeur d’Alene base will be home to one of the company’s new AgustaWestland Koala. LFN is also considering placing a fixed-wing aircraft in Coeur d’Alene later this year. LFN’s aircraft offer the ability to transport a critical care team, along with comprehensive life saving medications and medical equipment. LFN’s air ambulance will be the only resource bringing blood to critically injured patients before they even reach a hospital. The company plans to hire 14 employees, including flight nurses, flight paramedics, pilots and mechanics.
