UK air ambulances cleared to fly9th May 2012
Air ambulances across the UK have been cleared to fly again after being grounded after a safety alert.
Half of the country’s 32 air ambulance helicopters were forced to stop flying over concerns about possible cracks in the rotor hub. The main operator, Bond Air Services, had withdrawn all 22 of its Eurocopter EC 135 helicopters - including 16 air ambulances – but after working closely with Eurocopter engineers it had received a “an unequivocal guarantee” that the EC 135 was safe to fly.
