A news release says this expansion will advance Flight For Life’s overall mission to provide Wisconsin communities research-based critical care transport services by decreasing response times to injuries in southern Wisconsin, including Racine, Walworth, and Kenosha Counties, therefore improving patient outcomes.

Flight For Life will operate out of a temporarily leased hangar while a permanent hangar location at the airport can be identified and constructed.
