Life Flight: the Movie


Evangelistic in content and geared towards all ages, “Life Flight” is an action-packed movie about finding meaning in life. A spine-tingling adventure about people trying to make sense of their lives–from the Vietnam veteran scarred by war, to the idealistic flight nurse battling bureaucracy, to the administrator balancing lives and dollars.

Dove Review

Every day people around the country may see or hear of a Life Flight helicopter being used to save lives. This film tells the stories of the people who fly those helicopters. It explores their faith in God, their challenges in the program, and how lives are saved and changed because of their work. Most of all, this film says that believing in God will give us answers.

Sometimes it takes an accident to change the way people think. Kelly, along with others in the film, have faith that God will give them the answer to their need for more people to fly the helicopters. CJ needs help getting back on a helicopter so he can use his EMT experience. Linda (CJ’s wife) is an administrator at a hospital that is holding back on support for the Life Flights. Steve wants to find answers in the Bible. Will faith and belief in God help all of them?

We award “Life Flight” the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12+.
