HALO-Flight's mission is to provide medical transport for critically ill or injured persons requiring medical
or trauma facilities within our South Texas service area. Emergency assistance is provided to all persons
regardless of their ability to pay.
HALO-Flight, Inc. is a non-profit Air & Ground Ambulance Service. Founded in Falfurrias, Texas, the organization began operations in September, 1987. The base of operations was moved to Corpus Christi in 1989, providing a more central location and more stable financial base. Since its beginning HALO-Flight has transported thousands of critically ill and injured patients.*
* The information received from patients or others relative to the care of our patients is private and confidential and is protected from unauthorized use by both federal and state law. It is the policy of HALO-Flight, Inc. that all patient health information will be treated as private and confidential by all employees at all times and will be known as Protected Health Information (PHI).
HALO-Flight's service area covers 26 counties, 28,000 square miles and a population of more
than one million. Based in Corpus Christi, TX and in conjunction with regional hospitals,
EMS, & law enforcement agencies, HALO-Flight was established to provide the quickest response time
and highest quality of care to the critically ill and injured.

1.All three of HALO-Flight's Bell 407 helicopters are equipped with state of the art avionics.
The Chelton Synthetic Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) allows the pilot to have a 3D
view of the terrain around him presented via a flat panel with a heads up display look.
The system audibly warns of towers and other aircraft in the area before the human eye can
detect the danger. The Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) visually depicts terrain
changes and audibly warns of altitudes that are to low for the changing environment. It is
able to predict the aircrafts future flight path and advise the pilot of changes that need to be made.
2.The on-board WSI AV-300 Satellite Weather system gives the pilot an up to the minute look at the
weather allowing him to avoid expected or unexpected weather systems that can suddenly develop.
3. The SkyConnect Tracker with multiple channel dialer allows HALO-Flight's crews to make phone to phone
calls anywhere and allows HALO-Flight's dispatch center to know exactly where the aircraft is at
every moment. The communications operator is able to follow the aircraft via computer screen and have
minute to minute coordinates, speed, altitude and direction of travel throughout each mission.
4. All crew members are equipped during night flight with NVAG-6 Night Vision Goggles. These lightweight helmet
mounted goggles turn night into day allowing the crew to identify dangers such as wires, signs, people and
vehicles during scene flight landings necessary for their life-saving mission.
