ABOUT THE CHARITY

“Midlands Air Ambulance is the charity responsible for funding and operating three air ambulances serving the communities of six Midlands counties.

Since 1991, MAAC has responded to over 50,000 missions, making it one of the busiest air ambulance services in the UK.

Operating from strategically located regional airbases at RAF Cosford in Shropshire, Strensham in Worcestershire and Tatenhill in Staffordshire, our air ambulances can reach 90% of the region within eight minutes. Our aircraft each carries a crew comprising a pilot, two paramedics or a paramedic and flight doctor, plus full life-support medical equipment. Three rapid response vehicles are deployed when the helicopters are unable to fly, due to bad weather for example.

Funded entirely by donations, the charity relies on support from local people and businesses, to raise the £9 million needed to undertake on average 2,000 missions every year. We do not receive funding from the Government or National Lottery.”
