"My medical career started by volunteering as an ambulance first responder aged 18, which is where my affinity for the challenging pre hospital emergency medicine environment started."
"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."
“Working as part of such an enthusiastic team providing, what I consider, to be a first class service is so rewarding!”
"I have always loved flying helicopters, but I believe that Air Ambulance work is the most valuable thing that you can do with a helicopter pilot license."
"Being a HEMS pilot brings with it a whole range of new and exciting challenges to overcome and it is a privilege to work alongside all of my colleagues at EAAA"
"I loved flying in the military and enjoyed offshore work, but I was ready for a new challenge. The role at EAAA is incredibly rewarding."
“I have been with the charity for 15 years in March, both part time and full time.”
"I always saw HEMS as the pinnacle of helicopter operations. It’s a challenge where there are no two days the same."
“The learning curve at EAAA is certainly a steep one, but I'm having a blast!”
"Having encountered EAAA while working on the road as a EEAST paramedic, I have always been impressed by the knowledge, teamwork and drive to improve care for the sickest patients across the region."
"There are really difficult parts that come with the job, but every day is different and I love working with the HEMS team and whole EAAA charity"
"I joined EAAA in 2018 after leaving the Royal Navy following 12 years of service. I was recently promoted to a Captain position in readiness for flying 24/7 with the charity"
"For me, it is a huge privilege working with dedicated and immensely talented medical crew who are helping seriously ill or injured patients."
"I've been working frontline for 15 years; 11 of them as a registered Paramedic based out of Cromer Ambulance Station in North Norfolk."
"I’m so grateful for the support I’ve received from the crew and pilots as I’ve learnt to do this job."
“I love the challenge of providing the best care for my patients regardless of the environment they are in.”
