Help us keep local heroes in the air

Last year, the RACQ Choppers and Rescue Network helped more than 7,000 sick and injured patients in some of the remotest parts of our state. And they couldn’t have done it without you, our members. 

We’re a mutual organisation, which means every decision we make is to benefit our members and their communities. That’s how we’ve been able to keep the RACQ Choppers in the air for over 25 years.  

So whether the RACQ Choppers and Rescue Network are responding to medical emergencies on rural properties, attending car crashes, performing search and rescue missions or conducting inter-hospital patient transfers, your support is what makes that flight possible. That’s the difference your membership makes.  

In FY23, the RACQ Choppers and Rescue Network*: 

  • Flew close to 3,200 missions across Queensland 
  • Assisted more than 7,000 sick and injured patients 
  • Responded to more than 320 motor vehicle crashes

For more details on these statistics, see the FY23 For the Greater Good Report.
