Helicopter Services are responsible for the safety and airworthiness of our aircraft as well as looking after our operations and ensuring we meet required regulations.
Our two state-of-the-art Eurocopter EC-135 helicopters operate up to 19 hours a day. The Exeter-based, night-capable aircraft flies into the hours of darkness, which enables us to help more patients.
The aircraft are replaced periodically to ensure they are fit for purpose and able to support changing patient and clinical needs as well as technological advancements. We shall take delivery of the new 145 helicopter from Airbus in the summer of 2020.
