East Anglian Air Ambulance exists to save lives by delivering highly skilled doctors and critical care paramedics by air or car to seriously ill or injured people in the region. We are a life-saving charity that is only kept airborne thanks to our incredible supporters. Thank you.
Together we save lives

EAAA starts flying 24/7
On 30 June, EAAA became the first air ambulance in the East of England to fly 24 hours a day. The gap between 1:30 am and 7am where there has been no helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) coverage in the region was closed.

Meet Pilot Henrietta
"I’ve wanted to be a pilot since I was 12 and becoming a HEMS pilot was always my dream and why I wanted to fly helicopters. I feel very privileged to be able to work with such amazing crews and inspirational people at Babcock and EAAA. I look forward to coming to work, the flying is exciting and every day is different!"Read more about our crew
How we work to make a difference
A 24/7 service
With the combination of a quick response time, advanced critical care on scene and quick transfer to the appropriate hospital, our mission is to save more lives across East Anglia.
We're aiming to minimise the impact of trauma in the community by providing vital first aid training, so more people can take action if someone nearby suffers a medical emergency.
The missions we attend are often life-changing for our patients. By offering dedicated aftercare support, we're helping more of our patients and their families with their recovery journeys.
By developing partnerships and collaborations with local organisations who have aligned ambitions to ours, we can continue to do the very best for each and every patient we treat.
