Devon Air Ambulance doubles capability with specially configured EC135
Devon Air Ambulance has added a second Eurocopter EC135 to its fleet, and performed a five-day tour through Devon, thanking the public for funds raised to finance air ambulances within the emergency medical service system.

Devon Air Ambulance has added a second Eurocopter EC135 to its fleet, and performed a five-day tour through Devon, thanking the public for funds raised to finance air ambulances within the emergency medical service system.

The P2i model joins an EC135 T2 previously acquired by the Devon Air Ambulance Trust, both of which are fully owned by the Exeter-based charity.

“Our new helicopter is a very special air ambulance with many tailored design features that were only made possible by the superb collaboration and understanding between our staff and Eurocopter,” says Heléna Holt, chief executive officer. “Owning both our helicopters is the culmination of many years of planning and fundraising, but it has all been very worthwhile, as we are not only saving considerable sums of money, but are able to continue improving our service to the people of Devon,” she says.
