Keep us at the Frontline of Saving Lives

It costs us £3,600 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 3,293 times to help people in need of urgent critical care.


We are called out on average 9 times a day.


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

Get ready to party with us!

To celebrate our 25th anniversary, we want to party with the people who make our lifesaving service possible – people like you.

That’s why you’re invited to our Big Birthday Bash, a fun-filled family day on Saturday of June, at Penn Estate Buckinghamshire.

Save the date and join us to celebrate this special birthday.


In 2023, we faced increased demand. Our crews responded to 3,293 emergencies, making it our busiest year on record.

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.

25 ways to support us

In 1999, our critical care service first took to the skies. Now, 25 years and nearly 35,000 call-outs later, we dedicate our 25th anniversary to our patients and their families, each of whom are at the heart of our story as a charity.

If you feel like giving us a boost this year, you might be surprised at all the ways you can get involved, from recycling your unwanted clothes to attending our Big Birthday Bash.


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.
