THE YORKSHIRE Air Ambulance is to get a second new helicopter.

It will complement the state-of-the-art new Airbus H145 model which will be in operation later this year – giving the YAA the resilience it needs to deliver high quality emergency care to the people of Yorkshire.

The rapid response emergency service announced the replacement of their oldest MD902 Explorer aircraft, G-SASH in the summer of 2015, however plans for a second Airbus H145 model to replace the other MD902 Explorer G-CEMS have been brought forward.

The announcement comes after the YAA Chairman Peter Sunderland and Vice-Chairman Bruce Burns visited the Airbus factory in Munich to see the progress of their first new helicopter. Mr Sunderland said: “Our visit to Munich proved a great success. We were fortunate enough to be able to see our first new helicopter on the production line.”
