Life Save Kūpono Shuts Down

Air Method, the parent company of Life Save Kūpono, one of two inter-island air ambulance services in Hawai‘i, has closed Life Save Kūpono's doors today. It was one of several of Air Method's subsidiaries to be shuttered due to inflation, and reduced Medicare compensation.

Life Save Kūpono has four Beechcraft King Air C90As: N911ZC (msn LJ-1557), N911ZD (msn LJ-1559), N911ZE (msn LJ-1358), and N911ZF (msn LJ-1515) based at the Castle & Cooke Aviation hangar; along with a couple of ambulances.

The closure leaves Hawai‘i Life Flight, operated by American Medical Response (AMR), as the sole inter-island air ambulance service
