    Wiltshire Air Ambulance, November 12, 2019 - We are delighted to announce we have received our Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and will return to Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) immediately.

    Our charity is now just one of four air ambulances who hold their own Air Operator Certificate.

    Chief executive David Philpott says: “This has been a hard slog and has taken a lot longer than we anticipated – and a lot longer than it really should have.

    “I would like to thank everyone who has worked tirelessly for the charity to get the AOC; they have all gone the extra mile.

    “Our trustees have provided rock solid support throughout the process. Equally the backing from our Ambassadors and local MPs has been very welcome.

    “Our pilots, paramedics and charity staff deserve immense credit for their work during this challenging period, along with our dedicated volunteers who are out supporting the charity at events come rain or shine.

    “Importantly we are now able to return to what we are here to do, providing helicopter emergency medical services for the people of Wiltshire and surrounding areas.”

    Our Bell 429 helicopter is available to be called to incidents immediately.
