Meet Our Team

It takes more than just a helicopter to make a life changing difference

Share your story

Your North West Air Ambulance Charity would not be here without our crew, head office staff, trustees and most importantly you – our supporters.

Here’s an introduction to some of our team who help make a life-changing difference to people across the North West.

Our Crew

Our three helicopters fly 365 days a year from our bases in Blackpool and City Airport Manchester (Barton) with a doctor and paramedics on board providing rapid treatment and hospital transfers to patients across the region – an area covering 5,500 square miles and eight million people.
