Daniel Zeichner joined East Anglian Air Ambulance staff, volunteers and generous hearted fundraisers to celebrate the arrival of its latest helicopter, the H145.
The new aircraft has begun service operation as Anglia Two based at Cambridge Airport and is the first of its kind to go into service in England.
Andrew Egerton Smith, founder and Chairman of EAAA said: “The H145 is the next major step in our journey for continuous improvement of pre-hospital emergency care across East Anglia.”
The new helicopter will be able to carry enough fuel to fly for over two hours, with a range of 300 nautical miles (335 miles) and will provide EAAA with the capability of carrying two flight crew, three clinicians and a patient. It will also offer greater cabin space and will allow more to be done to help the patient during the transfer process.
Daniel Zeichner said: "I am pleased to support the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Of course we all hope we will never need to call on the services of the EEAA but if the worst happens we know that dedicated, highly skilled medical crews are on hand to fly in on their new helicopter."
