Thames Valley air ambulance cleared to fly again
Published: 15 Dec 2013 12:15
The EC135 Eurocopter, a similiar aircraft to the one involved in a fatal ctash in Glasgow earlier this month, was grounded as a precaution on Thursday to rectify a fault in the fuel supply system.
Mark McGeown, Chief Executive of the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance, said: “We fully believe that the safety of patients and air ambulance staff is the number one priority. Obviously we are pleased to be able to resume normal operations.
“I would like to thank our colleagues in the South Central Ambulance Service and the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance for helping us maintain our emergency cover during these last few days.”
