Safety First Culture

Safety is a core value and at the heart of everything LifeFlight Eagle does. From the time a flight request comes in, until we safely deliver the patient to the care they need and beyond, safety is our top priority. By making safety our #1 priority, we ensure that we are providing safe, high quality, and cost effective care to the sick and injured.

Life Flight Eagle Service Area

LifeFlight Eagle serves communities in Missouri and Eastern Kansas from its four bases in Chillicothe, Odessa, Harrisonville, and Clinton, MO. Our Bell 407 and Bell 407GX aircraft have an operational radius of 150 nautical miles from each of our bases. However, in practical terms, the vast majority of our flights occur within 50-75 miles of our bases. The below map shows approximately a 30-minute response time including the time it takes us to preflight and launch the helicopter after receiving a request. Flight times from a scene or referring facility to a receiving hospital are much faster.

Our larger Sikorsky S-76 twin-engine helicopter, which is dedicated to the Children’s Mercy Critical Care Transport Team, has a larger range and does frequently travel 200 miles or further for specialized neonatal and pediatric interfacility transfers.

Destination Safe

As a non-profit helicopter ambulance program, LifeFlight Eagle responds to hundreds of traumatic vehicle accidents in rural communities surrounding Kansas City each year. Many of them happen on Missouri’s roadways.
