Wiltshire Air Ambulance were established in March 1990 as a joint venture between the Wiltshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust and the Wiltshire Constabulary. Sharing resources kept our costs down and the charity needed £700,000 a year to keep Wiltshire’s air ambulance in the skies. In January 2015 we started operating a dedicated air ambulance which means they must raise £3.25m a year.
They are a registered charity and rely almost entirely on public donations to keep them flying.
They really are funded by you and flying for you.
Wiltshire Aire Ambulance are building a new airbase for there helicopter, aircrew and charity team. We received full planning permission in January 2017 for our new airbase on land at Outmarsh Farm, Semington, near Wiltshire.
The site is ideally situated in central Wiltshire, allowing there helicopter to reach all parts of the county within 11 minutes.
