Here are some interesting facts about our operations, helicopters... and their pilots in 2018.

In 2018, there were over three and a half thousand landings by our aircraft in Devon and in the surrounding area when required.

This figure relates to the number of times our aircraft touched down. For example, on a typical job we would take off and land four times: from our base, on scene with a patient, at hospital, then back at base.

(DVAA and DAAN are the identities attributed to our helicopters.)

In 2018 we attended around
21 patients every week on average.
Between our two aircraft, our aircrews spent the equivalent of over a month (which is around 730 hours) in Devon's skies in 2018.
It's important that our pilots begin the day on a full stomach. WEETABIX was deemed to be the breakfast fuel they needed in 2018.
