Compassion. Commitment. Community.

Since its founding in 1983 as the very first consortium air rescue program in the United States, CALSTAR has provided life-saving air medical transport in an effort to speed rehabilitation and improve outcomes for victims of critical illness or injury. From humble beginnings in the Bay Area to a growing operation of more than a dozen bases located throughout Northern and Central California, CALSTAR continues to succeed in its mission to save lives and reduce disability through rapid transport, excellent medical care, and education.

In 2016, CALSTAR Air Medical Services joined REACH Medical Holdings, LLC which combines the transport programs of CALSTAR, REACH Air Medical Services, Cal-Ore Life Flight, and Sierra Lifeflight. Together, these award-winning flight programs operate more than 50 bases in seven states.

Today, CALSTAR continues to play a vital role in supporting California’s emergency medical services infrastructure, providing vital critical care to regions that include both densely-populated urban communities and vast stretches of wilderness. In addition, the company takes great pride in advancing medical and education initiatives in healthcare to benefit both professionals and patients alike.
