Charity description

Air Ambulance Northern Ireland logo
Air Ambulance NI is the charity that fundraises for and manages the helicopter operations of Northern Ireland’s Helicopter Emergency Medical Service. 

AANI works in partnership with the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service and the health trusts which provide the medical teams on board its helicopter.  It is a doctor-led service so its value is in getting hospital ER-level treatment to trauma casualties on site in minutes, as well as slashing the travel time for the transfer of casualties to hospital.

From its primary operating base at Maze Long Kesh it can reach any part of Northern Ireland in twenty-five minutes.   

On 22 July 2017 during a period of final preparation and familiarisation, the Air Ambulance NI crew were tasked with attending to and transporting to hospital the eleven-year-old victim of an agricultural accident.  This was the first ever live deployment of the new service and thankfully the patient is on their way to recovery.

Our Mission

To meet this need through the relief of sickness and injury by the operation of a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) throughout Northern Ireland.
