Information from the Air Ambulance Service
On average, our Helicopter Emergency Medical Services will complete 3 missions a day, every day of the year.
The average mission costs £1700 to complete. Total missions last month were 318 and total missions 38,567.
Our two helicopters cover over 3,580 square miles and a population of over 3.2 million.
We cover many of the UK’s major road networks, including the M1, M6, M69 and M42.
We depend on the generosity of individuals like you to keep us in the air and saving lives.
We do not receive government funding and so it is the efforts and generosity of individuals and organisations that make it possible for us to do what we do.
We simply could not fly without you.
