We hope you’ll never need us, but if you do we’ll be there.
You may have heard of the local air ambulance service, or seen us in the sky. You may even know someone we’ve helped. But there’s something you might not realise – we wouldn’t be able to run this lifesaving service without the support of people like you.
It may surprise you to know that the government does not fund our charity. And though we work very closely with the NHS, we are not part of it.
Every single penny of our operating costs is given by local people like you. We couldn’t get an inch off the ground if it wasn’t for you. We are literally lifted in the air by the kindness of local people.
- Our average response time is 13 minutes – we fly the fastest civilian helicopter in the world
- We fly 6 missions a day – we’ve saved thousands of lives in your local community.
