East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) celebrated the arrival of its latest helicopter, the H145 T2 on Wednesday. The new aircraft has begun service operation as Anglia Two based at Cambridge Airport and is the first of its kind to go into service in England.
Andrew Egerton Smith, founder and Chairman of EAAA said: “The H145 T2 is the next major step in our journey for continuous improvement of pre-hospital emergency care across East Anglia.”
The new helicopter will be able to carry enough fuel to fly for over two hours, with a range of 300 nautical miles and will provide EAAA with the capability of carrying two flight crew, three clinicians and a patient. It will also offer greater cabin space and will allow more to be done to help the patient during the transfer process.
Medical Director, Alastair Wilson said: “This new aircraft will allow us to continue to provide the very best pre-hospital care.”
