We would like to give you the opportunity to meet the faces behind the team at the Yorkshire Air Ambulance!
Our crew, which are based at either our Nostell Airbase, near Wakefield or RAF Topcliffe, near Thirsk, are a highly skilled team of paramedics, pilots and doctors.
The pilots are highly experienced and skilled helicopter specialists. They have many years of flying experience, and it is this experience that enables them to land our crew in some of the most remote locations across Yorkshire.
Our highly skilled paramedics are provided by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust and they are all fully trained in HEMS (Helicopter Medical Emergency Service). They also receive further specialist training.
We now fly with highly trained consultants in emergency medicine and anesthesia 12 hours a day, every day of the year.
The team will carry additional drugs as well as being able to perform emergency anaesthesia and life-saving surgical procedures at the scene of an incident
