London's Air Ambulance: Prince William allows the helicopters to land in Kensington Palace to refuel
As the coronavirus continues its race in the UK, EMS has to consider other cases of emergency, too. Especially for critical care, the air ambulance helicopters have the provide a high-performance. That’s why Prince William allowed London’s Air Ambulance to land in Kensington Palace’s grounds to refuel, in order to save precious time.
London’s Air Ambulance has come to the need for a convenient site to refuel its helicopters. That’s why Prince William decided to allow the air ambulance helicopters to land in Kensington Palace’s grounds.
Prince William already has a passion for helicopters, because of his experience as a helicopter pilot. So he allowed the pilots of London’s Air Ambulance Charity to use Perks Field close to the royal residence.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the helicopter crews had to refuel in West London, because of the Battersea Heliport closure. Now with the new landing platform, will be easier to organize the flights and saving precious time.
Prince William served as a helicopter pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA), and in March, he became the patron of London’s Air Ambulance Charity.
Captain Neil Jeffers, chief pilot for London’s Air Ambulance Charity is grateful to the Royal Family that demonstrated great interest and care to London’s Air Ambulance job. Kensington Palace base is very important to provide critical care flights. The difficulties in refuelling during the pandemic determined heavy issues in providing other emergency flights at the right time.
What is London’s Air Ambulance Charity, briefly?
London’s Air Ambulance is the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to London’s most seriously injured patients. London’s Air Ambulance was established in 1989 in response to a report by The Royal College of Surgeons, which documented unnecessary deaths from trauma and criticised the care that seriously injured patients received in the UK. We serve the 10 million people that live work and travel within the M25, creating an average of five patients every day. The most common incidents we attend include road traffic collisions, stabbings and shootings, falls from height and incidents on the rail network.
