REACH and its Outstanding Growth
REACH Air Medical Services provides emergency medical transport via air and ground ambulances throughout California. Their services also span across other regions like Colorado, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, and Wyoming. Their medical air services have been operating since 1987, during which they have successfully transported in excess of 135,000 patients.
Their superior quality service has earned them a Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems accreditation. The parent company of REACH Air Medical Services is REACH Medical Holdings, which also owns other companies like Cal-Ore Life Flight, CALSTAR Air Ambulance, and Sierra Lifeflight. REACH Medical Holdings also takes care of the aircraft maintenance for 7 hospitals and EMS agency programs.
REACH Air Medical Services carry out their transportation using an EC135 helicopter that’s been equipped for medical transportation. The aircraft is attended to by a team of nurses and paramedics specially trained to oversee medical flights. The team provides critical care on board the aircraft, ensuring that critically ill or injured patients are safely transported.

The network provides memberships for $65 per year per household, which also covers the cost of emergency flights using REACH air ambulance.
