Yorkshire Air Ambulance
This air ambulance entered service at the start of September 2016. It will be joined by a second H145, G-YOAA, before the end of 2016.
The H145s replace two aging MD902 Explorers. The Explorers had seen unprecedented exposure in numerous series of BBC’s Helicopter Heroes. The first series of the programme was presented by Richard Hammond as his way of saying thank you to YAA for saving his life when he crashed while filming for Top Gear.
The new H145 is night-capable, enabling longer flying hours and not leaving medics grounded as soon as the sun sets. It is also fitted with a winch and FLIR camera to see heat rather than light.| Follow us on
