Top-of-the-range helicopter to save lives in Lincs & Notts
This week we launched our brand-new state-of-the art helicopter- the AgustaWestland 169.
After more than a year in the planning we finally unveiled the helicopter that will serve the people of Lincs & Notts for years to come.
Following our media launch and some final training, the iconic yellow helicopter will be operational as of this week and will be dispatched to some of the most serious life-threatening 999 calls within the two counties, undertaking an average of 3 missions every day, 365 days a year.
This year it will cost our Charity £2.5 million to keep the helicopter in the sky, saving lives every day. To raise this money we rely totally on the people, organisations and businesses of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. We can only continue to do this with your help!
