The helicopters, crewed by a pilot and 2 paramedics, undertake life-saving missions; accidents; eg road traffic incidents and equestrian/sports related injuries, but also medical emergencies; eg cardiac arrests and strokes. They also undertake inter hospital transfers; where a patient at one hospital needs urgent specialist treatment at another.

Thank you for taking the time to rea hope you found it informative.

The speed of the service reduces patient deterioration; eg spinal injuries, head injuries and burns. The helicopter is able to take a patient direct to a specialist hospital, which may not be the closest to the incident.

ABOUT THE HELICOPTERS Both of our helicopters are EC135s. G-DVAA flies from Middlemoor, Exeter, sharing facilities with the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary’s Air Support Unit, and is owned outright by the a charity. G-DAAT flies from Eaglescott in North Devon and is leased by the charity, although there are plans to look into buying a second aircraft at the end of the leasing contract. Buying is a much more cost effective way for the charity to spend the money donated so generously by the public. Jointly, the helicopters fly an average of 850 missions a year.
