The Air Ambulance Service (TAAS) has recently confirmed the completion of its 25,000th mission, a massive achievement.  In reaching this total, it has three AgustaWestland AW109 helicopters and night support by road.  No figure has been released for how many of the 25,000 missions were by road, and how many by air.

The landmark call took the critical care team by road in the night car after a report of a man unwell at home at Burton Latimer, Northamptonshire.

The three helicopters operated by The Air Ambulance Service fly for

  • the national Children’s Air Ambulance – based at Coventry Airport
  • the local air ambulance service for Warwickshire, Northamptonshire – based at Coventry Airport
  • the local air ambulance service for Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland – based at East Midlands Airport

Recently, HeliHub.com exclusively revealed that TAAS will be replacing the Children’s Air Ambulance AW109 with two AW169s, one based in Northern England, one in the South.
