We need your support


Follow our journey

Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance launched on 22nd May 2013. From our base at Perth Airport we are well positioned geographically to reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes. We are also ideally placed to reach some of Scotland’s remotest areas within a 15 to 30 minute timeframe. We fly to time-critical emergencies across Scotland and rely 100% on donations from our supporters to ensure we are there when needed.
