Community Flights is a not-for-profit registered charity closing the gap to healthcare access for regional and rural Queensland patients. Community Flights provides free-of-charge aircraft transport for patients and carers to non-emergency medical treatment and services. Community Flights aircrafts are not equipped for medical emergencies and the pilots and volunteers are not able to provide any medical treatment before, during, or after the flights.
