Yorkshire Air Ambulance (YAA) has awarded its new contract for maintenance of their helicopters to Yorkshire based aviation management company, Multiflight.

The contract, which will commence on 20th August, will see Multiflight take control of all the maintenance of the two MD902 Explorer helicopters the YAA operate.  Ironically, the YAA has been based on Multiflight’s site at Leeds Bradford International Airport for over ten years now, but previously had been tied into a maintenance contract with another aviation company.

Peter Sunderland, Chairman of the YAA comments: “The YAA are proud of our Yorkshire heritage and enjoy building partnerships with other Yorkshire based companies.  We are therefore delighted to be developing our working relationship with Multiflight who will now be maintaining our two helicopters, as well as us operating from their site at Leeds Bradford International Airport.”

The YAA is an independent Charity who operate two life-saving helicopters across the Yorkshire region.  The Charity need to raise £7,200 each day to keep both of the state-of-the-art helicopters in the air and maintained – this is equivalent to £2.6million each year.

Steve Borrowdale, Managing Director of Multiflight also added; “Multiflight is delighted to be awarded the new five-year Yorkshire Air Ambulance contract and to be the company chosen to manage and maintain the aircraft for the charity.  Yorkshire Air Ambulance provides a valuable service to our region and Multiflight is pleased to be able to help and support the charity.  The new Yorkshire Air Ambulance contract further cements our reputation for delivering a complete turnkey solution for the customer.”

The two YAA helicopters are operated from Leeds Bradford International Airport and Bagby Airfield near Thirsk offering the people of Yorkshire the best possible Air Ambulance service across the region.  They operate seven days a week, 365 days per year covering a vast landscape that covers not only rural and isolated locations, but also some of the busiest motorway networks in the UK.
