The Air Ambulance had been based on the north side of Filton since 2008 but following an announcement by British Aerospace to sell the site, a new base was needed. Planning was finally approved after objections, in Dec 2016; the new base at Almondsbury, adjacent to the M4/M5 motorway interchange became operational in 2018.
