Altru Care Flight

Altru Care Flight is an air ambulance transport program that serves patients across the Red River Valley. 

A Pilatus PC 12 fixed-wing aircraft anchors the service and is located at the Grand Forks Regional Airport. The air ambulance is equipped with the latest and most advanced lifesaving equipment and a critical care trained medical staff, composed of paramedics and registered nurses, to safely transport patients to their next medical destination.

In August of 2019, Altru Care Flight began offering neonatal patient transportation services.
