Role: Line Pilot

When did you join Wiltshire Air Ambulance?​ I joined in November 2014

Tell us a little bit about your role: My job as a line pilot is to prepare and fly the helicopter in support of the medical crew.

What do you love about your job? Flying Air Ambulance enables me to combine my passion for flying helicopters with providing a really worthwhile, life-saving medical service.  For me, it is a huge privilege working with dedicated and immensely talented medical crew who are helping seriously ill or injured patients.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself: I am being followed around by Prince William, both as an RAF Search and Rescue pilot in North Wales and an Air Ambulance pilot in East Anglian.  Maybe he’ll come to Wiltshire Air Ambulance next!
