A Dauphin N2 helicopter supplied to the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) charity by Multiflight has been launched in Newcastle.

The helicopter, the first of two Dauphin N2 helicopters that Multiflight has supplied to the charity, flew in over the Tyne and landed on Gateshead’s Quayside for the launch event. Representatives from GNAAS, Multiflight and the media were among those present to greet the helicopter as it landed.

The new life-saving aircraft, which is painted in its official GNAAS livery and is kitted out with state-of-the-art life-saving equipment, will be known as the “Guardian of the North”.

The Eurocopter AS 365N2 Dauphin helicopter belonged to Multiflight’s fleet of charter helicopters. The company, which specialises in buying and selling aircraft, maintained and operated the Dauphin for a private individual under its Air Operators Certificate.

The helicopter will serve the communities across the North West of England, North Yorkshire and Cumbria.

Steve Borrowdale, Multiflight’s Managing Director, said Multiflight was delighted to have been chosen to help and support GNAAS with buying two helicopters, as well as the management and crewing of both aircraft.

“The newly-launched helicopter will be a great asset to the valuable service that the charity provides,” he said.
