Custom-designed aircraft barrier fitted

24 April, 2020

As a charity we lease our aircraft, the EC135, from our partner; Babcock Mission Critical Services Onshore. Babcock have recently developed a custom-designed barrier that will help give reassurance to our pilots, who cannot wear personal protective equipment (PPE) whilst flying the Air Ambulance. The barrier is now fully approved for use on the EC135 and we took the opportunity to take some photographs earlier this week.

It is important to note that, whilst the barrier will give reassurance to our pilots, following the guidance of Public Health England, we are not able to carry patients in the Air Ambulance who have tested positive for Coronavirus.
