Help us keep local heroes in the air

Being member-owned means we can do more for Queensland communities every day. That’s why we’ve proudly supported the RACQ Air Rescue Network for over 25 years.

Our network includes RACQ Capricorn Rescue, RACQ CQ Rescue, and RACQ LifeFlight Rescue, all of which provide lifesaving care and transportation when it's needed most. From heart and respiratory events on rural properties, to car crashes, search and rescue missions, and inter-hospital patient transfers, our network helps Queenslanders when they need it most.

  • In 2020, the RACQ Air Rescue Network completed 2,068 lifesaving missions and the RACQ LifeFlight Air Ambulance Jets completed 486 missions^
  • In 2020, the RACQ LifeFlight Critical Care Doctors helped 6,104 people
  • RACQ has supported the medical and in-flight training of 140 LifeFlight Doctors

We’re proud to sponsor three air rescue networks
