EAAA mark 100th anniversary of Armistice day by flying the poppy over the region

EAAA helicopters – Anglia One and Anglia Two are flying the poppy over the region to pay homage to all those who suffered or lost their lives at war.

The poppy decals will be placed on the door of our two H145 helicopters as a mark of respect and to commemorate the contribution of military and civilian service men and women who sacrificed so much for us. Both helicopters will be on task over the weekend so if you see them out and about attending patients look out for the poppy.

The initiative has been brought in by our aviation partners Babcock UK Onshore, who have kindly provided the poppies to their customers.

Matthew Jones, Director of Operations at EAAA, said; “This is a really important day for us to mark as a charity and we were so pleased to hear that our aviation partners were supporting it too. Not only is it important for us to commemorate Remembrance Sunday and the sacrifice of so many, but it is all very close to home as many of our pilots, doctors and critical care paramedics come from military backgrounds and we know it is incredibly poignant for all of them too.”

Babcock’s Director UK Onshore, Rich Youngs, said: “Remembering the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women is hugely important, perhaps even more so on this, the 100th anniversary of Armistice day. We are proud to carry the poppy image on the aircraft we operate for EAAA and across the UK.”
