Among its missions, approximately 45.8% are carried out by a four-strong helicopter fleet, based at Hanscom Field,聽Plymouth Municipal Airport, Lawrence Municipal Airport, and Mansfield. In March 2018, the EMS transport provider took delivery of a new H145, the first of three that are set to join the fleet. The need is great, as Boston MedFlight transports some 4,000 critical care patients a year, or approximately 1,842 missions yearly.
