February 6, 2015, Dallas, TX — SevenBar Aviation
is pleased to announce it has signed a multi-year agreement to operate and maintain LifeFlight of Maine’s two twin-engine Agusta 109E helicopters and its King Air B200 fixed wing aircraft. This partnership, to begin April 1, 2015, is an opportunity for SevenBar to help LifeFlight accomplish its mission to serve the people of Maine—no matter how remotely they may be located.
Maine is the second most rural state by population density in the United States. LifeFlight of Maine aircraft, flying at 165 miles per hour, bring lifesaving equipment and critical care nurses and paramedics to emergency scenes and
small, rural hospitals throughout the state. SevenBar is ideally positioned to step in and provide fixed and rotor wing air medical transport solutions for LifeFlight. By focusing on providing the most advanced technology and highly
trained professionals, SevenBar will play a key role in meeting the needs of LifeFlight patients in Maine.
“All of us at SevenBar Aviation are thrilled to have LifeFlight of Maine as the newest member of the SevenBar family,” said SevenBar CEO and Owner Wade Black.
