Wiltshire Air Ambulance – Funded by you, flying for you.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance offers a helicopter emergency medical service for anyone who lives, works and travels in Wiltshire. From the moment a call comes in, the air ambulance can reach anywhere in the county within 11 minutes. Our highly skilled paramedics can deliver critical care for patients at the scene and transfer them rapidly to the best hospital for their needs. The speed of the helicopter, along with the expertise of our crew, can make the difference between life and death.

We operate 19 hours a day,  365 days a year and our helicopter is one of two Air Ambulances in the South West who can attend emergencies at night. Nor do we stop at the county border – 12% of our call-outs are to emergencies in neighbouring counties.

We attend road traffic collisions, cardiac arrests, horse-riding accidents, agricultural incidents and sporting injuries. We can reach places inaccessible by road, and assist people whose injuries could be further complicated by a road journey to hospital.

To keep the helicopter flying and saving lives costs £3.25m per year, and we rely almost entirely on the donations we receive from the generous public, businesses and communities of Wiltshire.

If you’ve already booked your own place in the race, please consider raising funds for us – you really can make a difference and help save lives. Just let us know and we’ll send you everything you need to get started.
