Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance is based in the heart of Scotland at Perth Airport and can reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes.
For information about the Eurocopter EC135, a twin-engine civil helicopter manufactured by Airbus Helicopters and operated by the SCAA, click here.
Interestingly, the purchase of the Eurocopter EC135, faster and more powerful than the former Bolkow helicopter, was made possible by the receipt of £3.3 million, allocated from Libor fines imposed on banks.
While Airbus Helicopters is headquartered in Marignane at Marseille Provence Airport, France, there is UK technical support from Airbus Helicopters UK and also from the Airbus subsidiary, Vector Aerospace, a division of which is located in Almondbank by Perth.
Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance works closely with the Scottish Ambulance Service who provide the paramedic staff that crew the helicopter tasking the helicopter through their Ambulance Control Centres.
