The Devon Air Ambulance is a charity providing emergency medical services through the provision of two helicopter-based air ambulances covering the county of Devon in South West England. The helicopters are owned and run by the Devon Air Ambulance Trust which raises money from public donations - its only source of funding.
The service went into operation on 27 August 1992, covering the entirety of the county of Devon, including the rural and inaccessible moors of Exmoor and Dartmoor. The trust currently operates two helicopters -Eurocopter EC135 - and can reach 50 per cent of locations in Devon within five minutes of taking to the air, with remaining locations accessible within 20 minutes.
The Eurocopter EC135 is a twin-engine civil light utility helicopter produced by Airbus Helicopters. It is capable of flight under instrument flight rules and is outfitted with a digital automatic flight control system.
These magnificent scale models are licensed DAAT products and so every purchase helps keep the aircraft flying and saving lives.
