Salisbury's air ambulance

Our aircrew are regularly called to incidents in Salisbury and across the South Wiltshire area, both in our helicopter and our two critical care cars.

Our airbase in Semington, near Trowbridge, is just a short flight to Salisbury and the South West. However, due to activity at Boscombe Down, sometimes we will have to make slightly longer trips to circumnavigate no-fly zones.

This includes to areas such as Amesbury and Tidworth.
