Swindon's air ambulance
Wiltshire Air Ambulance's most visited town/city for the last few years has been Swindon.
With a population of 233,713, according to the 2021 census, it's understandable that we are called to Swindon, on average, more than three times a week.
Our airbase in Semington, near Trowbridge, is just 11 minutes’ flying time to the town centre.

Supporting the local area
We are not just there for the people of Swindon.
Our helicopter and critical care cars also attend missions in Ashton Keynes, Blunsdon, Cricklade, Highworth, Purton, Royal Wootton Bassett and Wroughton.
It takes us between seven and 11 minutes to fly to these areas.
We are very lucky to be supported by the local sports clubs across Swindon.
Each season you will find our staff and volunteers attending Swindon Wildcats home games at the Link Centre.
Swindon Town Football Club have also been long-term Charity of the Year partners to us.
