One of the United Kingdom’s busiest medical airlift providers – Midlands Air Ambulance Charity – has put its newest rotorcraft in operation: an Airbus Helicopters EC135 T2e, becoming the first fully-owned fleet member for this regional charity organization. At a public launch event held yesterday at Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s RAF Cosford airbase in Wolverhampton, Hanna Sebright, the chief executive, stated: “This is a momentous milestone in Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s 23 year history.” The new EC135 will enable a further extension of Midlands Air Ambulance’s airlift services beyond the current daylight operations. Based at the Royal Air Force base in Cosford, Shropshire, the EC135 T2e will be maintained and operated by Bond Air Services, which also leases and operates two other EC135s to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
