How many helicopters do you think London’s Air Ambulance service has to service the capital’s 10 million inhabitants? The answer, incredibly, is one.
That’s why Luviair is sponsoring the ‘Your London, Your Helicopter, campaign that is aiming to raise £4.4 million to buy and operate a second helicopter. That’s about 400 extra lifesaving flight operations a year.
The charity London’s Air Ambulance is an official charity of the Helitech International 2015 exhibition. Charles Newitt, COO of the charity, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as an official charity of Helitech International 2015. It is a privilege to be the beneficiary of this generosity from the international aviation community as it gathers in London. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the event’s organisers, exhibitors and visitors for their ongoing support.”
Nigel Watson, founder of Luviair – who provide helicopter acquisition and management services for VIPs, corporate owners and superyachts – said Luviair was delighted to sponsor this cause. “I was amazed to hear that just one helicopter is serving the emergency needs of 10 million people. I’m pleased Luviair can play a small part in doing something about it.”
