Children's Wales Air Ambulance

It is our aim to serve the whole of Wales, including Wales' youngest patients.

The Children's Wales Air Ambulance is a specialist division of our charity, providing the expert care and transport required for paediatric and neonatal patients. Our fourth helicopter makes us the largest air ambulance in the UK and is used for providing a range of treatments for paediatric patients.

We help around 400 children and babies a year, either on emergency 999 missions or by using our dedicated transfer helicopter.

1. How long have you worked with Wales Air Ambulance?


I have worked for Wales Air Ambulance as a co-pilot for just over a year.

2. Have you always wanted to be a pilot?


It was always an aspiration of mine to fly, having a dad in the military who was a helicopter pilot himself really inspired me to try and achieve what seemed to be the impossible dream! That, coupled with watching Air Ambulance programmes on the TV as I was growing up really sparked my interest in helicopters.

3. What does it mean to you to fly for WAA?


Flying for WAA is a fantastic opportunity, being a part of such a brilliant team is so rewarding. I’m very lucky to get the opportunity to fly around beautiful Wales and the rest of the UK on the dedicated Children’s Wales Air Ambulance.

4. If you weren't a pilot, what would you be?


I have a love for music and have played drums since a young age so I’d like to say a professional drummer!

5. When are where did you do your training? Civilian or military?


I started my flying training in 2013. I started flying in County Durham but I have completed parts of my training all over the UK.
