Yorkshire Air Ambulance

The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is an independent charity providing a life saving rapid response emergency service to 5 million people across Yorkshire. We fly seven days a week, 365 days a year, covering a vast landscape that not only includes major cities and motor ways, but also rural and isolated locations.

To keep providing this life saving service the charity needs to raise £7200 per day to keep both of Yorkshire’s Air Ambulances maintained and in the air. The generosity that we receive is the life blood of the charity and with out this generosity, we would not be able to provide the service that we are so proud of.

The charity was set up in 2000 and with the addition of the second air ambulance in October 2007, we are one of the only Dedicated Air Desk in the UK. With the addition of the Air Ways Communication Systems, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance has developed into a sophisticated emergency service that provides state-of-the-art emergency medial care throughout Yorkshire. The swift medical interventions provided by our air ambulance crews have a major impact on a patient’s chance of survival and subsequent quality of life.

Both of Yorkshire’s air ambulances are MD902 Explorers and have state-of-the-art medical and helicopter specification. The first air ambulance, based at Leeds Bradford International Airport is known as G-SASH and the second air ambulance based at Sheffield City Heliport is known as G-CEMS. Both helicopters can reach speeds of up to 145 mph and together cover the whole of the region 365 days a year.

By pledging to do a sponsored parachute jump you can raise money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and have the experience of a lifetime. Jumping from a perfectly serviceable aeroplane takes a good deal of courage. Just ask your friends, family and work colleagues how much they are prepared to pay not to jump out of an aircraft, and put that money to the cause.
