New Wiltshire Air Ambulance to begin in 2015

The new Wiltshire Air Ambulance is due to go into service in the New Year, heralding the end of a long association with the county's police force.

The two organisations have been sharing an emergency response helicopter since 1990. But new legislation means it now has to operate separately from the police. The new Bell 429 helicopter has rapid response capabilities and a top speed of 180 miles an hour.
