Nonprofit Air Ambulance

HALO-Flight, South Texas’ nonprofit air ambulance service, provides emergency transportation and critical care services for patients, regardless of their ability to pay. Since 1987, HALO-Flight has responded to over 23,000 missions, and made a lasting impact on the patients themselves, their families, and their community.

Operating under a FAA Part 135 Certificate, HALO-Flight values safety improvements within our air medical community. Missions include interfacility transfers and pre-hospital scene flights. Interfacility transfers occur when a patient requires a higher level of care not available within the facility, which may include specialty cases such as severe burns and other modalities deemed appropriate for air ambulance transport. Pre-hospital scene flights require collaboration between first responders and HALO-Flight to transport the critically ill or injured.

In preparation for the unexpected, HALO-Flight educators travel across the 26-county service area, which covers over 28,000 square miles in South Texas, to provide complimentary education courses focused on acute and critical care for pre-hospital crews of all levels. The Texas Department of State Health Services presented the 2021 EMS Educator Award to HALO-Flight’s educators as a testament to the impact their service makes on South Texas communities and the EMS System as a whole.

Working alongside your local healthcare professionals and first responders, HALO-Flight stands committed to providing emergency transportation and critical care services when you need it most.


HALO-Flight relies on generous support from our South Texas community and business partners to stay in the air.
