When life-threatening illness or injury strikes, every second counts. Emergency transport from Avera’s rapid and reliable Careflight services may be critical to survival and recovery.

Rapid Emergency Air Transportation

In a region with a large, widely-scattered rural population, rapid emergency air transport is essential. Careflight brings this state-of-the-art technology to people throughout the region from its base locations in Sioux Falls, Aberdeen and Pierre.

Careflight is available 24/7/365 with:

  • Careflight helicopter – For shorter distances, our Eurocopter H-145 and two Eurocopter EC-145 helicopters provide smooth, quiet emergency transport.

  • Careflight fixed-wing – For distances greater than 150 miles or if the helicopter transport is limited by weather, our King Air 200 airplane and two Pilatus PC-12s are comfortable, effective, and ready at all times to provide emergency transports

  • Emergency vehicles – Ground ambulances provide high-quality critical care during transport to and between medical facilities.

If needed, Careflight can also travel to large medical centers in:

  • Bismarck, ND
  • Fargo, ND
