***  Read about our plans   ***

Our service has grown significantly over the past 30 years.

The increase in demand* for our exemplary time-critical care means we must future-proof our service to support the people of Devon and its visitors. The new airbase and HQ offers the solution we need.

Initial consultation

After an initial consultation with key stakeholders and staff across the organisation, we've defined the criteria for the base that will ensure that many wide-ranging needs are considered.

      • To ensure our key strategic pillars and operational requirements are met
      • To gain support from the people of Devon – our supporters and visitors
      • To potentially extend to a 24/7 service
      • To meet environmental sustainability objectives

*In the past 12 months (2021) there has been a 33.9% increase in the total number of missions deployed to by DAA helicopters and critical care cars across the county
