Enloe FlightCare Program
A symbol of our commitment to the local communities
The Enloe FlightCare Program touches the lives of many in our region by responding to emergencies within a 75-mile radius of Enloe in counties including Butte, Tehama, Glenn, Plumas, Colusa, Sierra, Yuba and parts of Lassen. FlightCare is supported by a full team of emergency and critical care experts. Since 1985, Enloe FlightCare has been saving lives in the area around Chico, transporting more than 16,000 patients. It was one of the first three air medical programs in the country to become fully certified with the Federal Aviation Commission to use night-vision goggles. The helicopter flies at an average speed of 135 miles per hour and responds to an average of three calls per day.
The FlightCare Membership Plan assures that members will not be billed for out-of-pocket expenses when FlightCare or a reciprocating emergency air service transports them.
