Since 2004, the Lutheran Air flight program has been dedicated to providing an air ambulance service dedicated to safety, quality and speed for all patients who are critically ill or injured. We are committed to these objectives and our record proves it.
Lutheran Air and Lutheran Air II are staffed with licensed and/or board-certified crews that are highly trained in specialty skills to treat critically ill patients. Crew members make the most of their specialty training by focusing on the unique needs of each patient.
Whether it’s an accident scene or hospital transfer, Lutheran Air teams are ready to take the call. In addition to medical training, crew members are trained extensively in the flight environment and the implications of providing care during air medical transports and emergency procedures on a rotor aircraft.
Safety is our first priority; Lutheran Air pilots work diligently on a daily basis to ensure that patients, medical crews and first responders are safe. Our aviation partnership with Air Methods provides Lutheran Air with decades of combined aviation experience delivered by professionals who have demonstrated the highest levels of skill associated with flight and engineering. The Lutheran Air fleet follows strict compliance to FAA standards and regulations.
The Lutheran Air flight program operates two Eurocopter EC-135 aircraft strategically positioned at airport bases to optimize regional coverage. Beginning in the fall of 2015, Lutheran Air will be based at Portland Municipal Airport in Jay County. Lutheran Air II has been based at Wabash Municipal Airport in Wabash County since 2013. Lutheran Air bases are staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
