East Anglian Air Ambulance
Although shown under Government Organisations,  East Anglian Air Ambulance is a charity, relying entirely on public donations to maintain and improve its operations. It was formed in summer 2000 and works closely with the East of England Ambulance Service and NHS Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) across the region. Its first mission was flown in Jan 2001 with Anglia One, a bright yellow Bo 105DS, based at Norwich and maintained by Sterling Helicopters. By May 2001, it had increased operations from one day a week to five days a week and  was covering Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.
Following the launch of a BK117 as a replacement Anglia One in Apr 2006, the original Bo 105 has gone into reserve and the service has been supplemented by a second bright yellow BK117 (Anglia Two), based at RAF Wyton, which has taken over the Cambridgeshire cover and extended it to Bedfordshire as well. Anglia Two moved to Cambridge from Jan 2011.
On 7 Mar 2011, the contract for the two BK.117s was terminated and Bond Helicopters had provided a pair of Bo.105 until Aug 2011. From then, a single Bond-provided EC-135 has taken over the service temporarily, alternating between Norwich and Cambridge bases. A permanent airframe arrangement awaits a revised procurement process.
As of 2017 EAAA flies two brand new H145 / EC145T2 helicopters. G-RESU (Anglia One) located at Norwich Airport and G-HEMC (Anglia Two) located at Cambridge Airport (Marshall).
