Our Busiest year On Record

2022 was our busiest year on record. For the first time in our history, we attended more than 3,000 callouts in a single year.

Behind each number is a real person going through perhaps the most traumatic event of their lives; our crew doing everything in their power to give them the best chance of survival; and your generous donations which fund every lifesaving mission.

Patient Story: Nathan

Last year, we were called to 430 serious road traffic collisions often treating patients with severe and life-changing injuries. Patients like 25-year-old Nathan Welch who was left with 12 broken bones and spent six months in a wheelchair following the smash which he thought would end his life.

Protecting, saving and reviving lives, together.

We’ve come a long way since we were first set up in 1999. We’ve continued to evolve and expand our service. But we want to go further.

We’re excited to share our new strategy with you: the most important member of our team.


Our interactive Mission Map puts you in the pilot’s seat, giving you a chance to travel through our region and see how your support has made a real difference to patients in need.

It costs us £3,900 to send our helicopter on each mission. We are an independent charity and receive no government or national lottery funding, relying solely on donations from generous supporters like you. Please donate today to help keep us flying.


Last year, we were called out 3,158 times to help people in need of urgent critical care.


We are called out on average 7 times a day.


The flight time between our base at RAF Benson and anywhere in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, or Oxfordshire is just 15 minutes.
