CareFlight welcomes the Gulfstream G150 jet to their fleet

Yesterday marked a new era in aeromedical services for the Northern Territory, with CareFlight unveiling a new edition to their fleet – the Gulfstream G150 Jet.

Philip Roberts, General Manager of CareFlight, hosted the event as Ministers, industry associates, and guests gathered with the Hon Vicki O’Halloran AO for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Sourced from the USA, the jet has been modified with the latest critical care equipment and is the only one of its kind in Australia. Reaching speeds of up to 880km/h and the ability to fly at altitudes above commercial airlines, the G150 can comfortably and safely transport Territorians with critical care needs to any city in Australia within five hours, without the need to refuel.

CareFlight pilots, nursing and engineering teams expressed excitement in having the opportunity to further their skills and knowledge working on such an elite type of aircraft.
