    H145 in Wales Air Ambulance Service


    Airbus Helicopters, July 18, 2018 - The Welsh charity, Wales Air Ambulance, operates three H145s for helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) in Wales, plus an H135 for Childrens Wales Air Ambulance, making them the largest H145 operator in the UK.

    Operating out of bases in Caernarfon, Llanelli, Welshpool and Cardiff, they cover 8,000 sq miles (20,700 km2) of remote countryside, mountain ranges, cities, and coastline in aid of approximately 2,500 missions a year.

    As only the third HEMS operator in the UK to use the twin-engine H145, WAA puts their “four dragons” to use providing primary care services for the Welsh people, an undertaking made possible with the H145’s medically configured interior, clamshell doors, and open cabin, among other attributes.

    “I’m happy with the H145. It gives us what we need as a team. It gives us that assurance that we can undertake our roles effectively and safely.”, Jason Hughes, critical care practitioner and team leader for EMRTS WAA

    For its specialist paediatric and neonatal division, WAA operates an H135. In 2017, the Childrens’ Wales Air Ambulance helped 332 infants and children. To keep this crucial public service running 365 days a year – thanks in part to a 99% availability rate – the WAA raises £6.5 million annually through online donations, fundraising and pound appeals. “I’m happy with the H145. It gives us what we need as a team,” says Jason Hughes, critical care practitioner and team leader for EMRTS WAA. “It gives us that assurance that we can undertake our roles effectively and safely.”
