Magpas Air Ambulance are proud to announce the arrival of our brand new helicopter, which is set to become the new Magpas Air Ambulance on Wednesday 1st May of this year.
The current helicopter has served us well, but it has come to the end of its working life as an air ambulance. The new helicopter will enable us to fly further, faster, to a greater number of patients, providing lifesaving care to patients in life threatening emergencies in; Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Bedfordshire, the East of England and beyond.
Magpas Air Ambulance can only exist because of the communities within which we work. Without our supporters, we wouldn’t be able to bring this state-of-the-art helicopter to the region. Yesterday (Wednesday 24th April), we organised a big community fly in and flew to four locations to say thank you. We flew from our operations base in Huntingdon to near Downham Market in Norfolk, moving onto Parker’s Piece in Cambridge, then onto Newmarket Academy and finally to Priory Country Park in Bedfordshire. We wanted to say thank you for the support over the last 48 years and to celebrate this milestone in the future of lifesaving care:
However, the story doesn’t stop here! We need an extra £50,000 a month to keep the new air ambulance for your community flying.
