Project: Rescue Flight is a 501c3 Non-Profit organization that was set up in 2001 for the
primary purpose of raising funds for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Departments
Since 2001 Project: Rescue Flight has raised $1.8 million dollars and has completely
refurbished Copter 3 a 1966 Vietnam era Bell Huey helicopter. Copter 3 has been
completely modernized to civilian standards. The aircraft has also been upgraded to
become what is known as a "Super Huey". Copter 3 will be used for Search & Rescue,
Fire Fighting, Homeland Security, Medical transports and Drug eradication missions.
Project: Rescue Flight is also raising funds for Copter 4 a Twin Engine Huey and is
upgrading this aircraft with all modern equipment as well. Copter 4 will be used to
perform the same missions as Copter 3 as well as being the primary aircraft for off-shore
rescues and Channel Island responses.
Project: Rescue Flight is dedicated to continue fund raising for the purpose of
maintaining and equipping the units' aircraft to provide the best service to the citizens of
Santa Barbara County.
