The GWAAC helicopter is celebrating one year of saving lives across Bristol, Bath, North Somerset, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire and parts of Wiltshire.
Our Eurocopter 135, callsign Helimed 65, arrived at our Filton base on 16th October 2014.
To celebrate her first birthday we’re going to have a party! We’re planning to surprise our crew on Friday October 16th with a large birthday card filled with as many signatures as possible and we’d love yours to be one of them.

The EC135 replaced our old Bolkow, enabling us to transform the care we are able to offer to patients. We can now carry a parent with a child, and land on the elevated helipad at the BRI.
