SkyLife Air Ambulance is a partnership between American Ambulance and Roger's Helicopters and provides rapid air medical transportation for the critically ill and injured trauma and medical patient. SkyLife has been serving California since 1991.


SkyLife Aircraft

SkyLife utilizes Bell 407 and Bell 430 helicopters with California bases at Fresno Yosemite International Airport and Visalia Airport. Our aircraft are available 24 hours/day and staffed with a flight nurse, flight paramedic and EMS pilot. Additionally, SkyLife utilizes a King Air airplane (fixed wing air ambulance) for long distance hospital-to-hospital transfers during inclement weather. Being centrally located, SkyLife is available for response throughout California.

SkyLife is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) and aircraft are operated under Roger's Helicopters FAA Part 135 Air Carrier Certificate.

Air ambulances provide critical time savings as well as high levels of patient care while inflight, reserved for the most critical patients. Medical helicopters are part of a team dedicated to provide that extra measure of support when it is needed most, when life is dependent upon quick, effective medical response.
