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
Since the charity launched in 2000, our crews have been dispatched to patients at the roadside, in the city, on the beach, maybe near where you live. Read about our latest missions.View recent missions
EAAA starts flying 24/7
The gap between 1:30 am and 7am where there has been no helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) coverage in the region will now be closed, as EAAA becomes the first air ambulance in the East of England to fly 24 hours a day.
This has only been made possible thanks to your incredible support. Together we save lives.Find out more
Meet Chris Marshall
By flying 24/7 from 30 June, EAAA will now be able to provide the same level of service by helicopter or by car 24 hours a day to patients in need like Chris Marshall, who was saved by the charity last year following a life-threatening collision with a car.Read Chris Marshall's story
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.
EAAA celebrated Air Ambulance Week with a special event to mark the official opening of the charity’s new 24/7 base
With more people staying in the UK this summer the demand on resources like the air ambulance is expected to increase.
