🚨🚁 💨 Windy landing for this London Air Ambulance – MD902 Explorer helicopters
Information on the website:
This model was specially selected for its suitability in an urban environment; they are small, with no tail rotor, which allows us to operate safely in an area as complicated as London. Our pilots require an area of around 80 feet by 80 feet to land (about the size of a small tennis court).
The helicopters are emblazoned with our charity’s livery, keeping them easily recognisable in the London skyline. They are specially adapted to be able to provide treatments to the standard of an intensive care unit on board.
