From all of the articles I've read on these. They are suppose to be awesome, and out perform Segways by a long shot. The are great for large events like fairs and concerts.

Apparently when they first tried to land there the cars just kept going up and down the road even though they were hovering at only 50 ft, they had to go away and drop one of the crew off in a nearby field so he could run back to the road and stop traffic. I wasn't there when they landed, the shots above are from them lifting off with patient safely on board, a DIYer who knocked a wall down on himself :rolleyes:

And people wonder why there have been so many EMS helicopter crashes in recent years. That close to poles, houses, etc and allowing cars up and down the street where he's trying to land. My neck of the woods that pilot woild probably be looking for a job. I can't believe his/her superiors would be impressed by their selection of a landing zone.

So many crashes? I don't think we've had any over here, the guys that fly the Air Ambulances over here are the elite of the elite and could land on a sixpence in gale force winds; especially the Navy lads. Perhaps if you've had so many incidents over there it's time to review your selection process. They weren't allowing cars up and down a road they wanted to land on it's just that they beat any of the land based emergency services there, the Police showed up minutes after they landed. The Police had been at a nearby location trying to clear a car park for the helicopter to land in but unfortunately too many of the car owners could not be traced in time and the guy needed to get to a hospital quickly. There was a BBC camera person on board so it was all filmed and his bosses will get to see it all.

You will find that the ambulance helicopter pilots in the UK are usually ex military pilots :)

FWIW, not just any helo pilot is hired here to fly medevac, most are ex-mil. as well here stateside.

IMO as a former flight paramedic, that LZ depicted is way too hazardous and I would have waved the pilot during a recon. fly over and went to a different location. I have 2 kids and a wife, im going home in the morning.

Having said that comparing EMS in the UK to the US is night and day, and that isnt even doing it justice. The UK is light years ahead of us in every single part of prehospital care it isnt even funny. There are so many helo crashes in the US because people whom have no business riding ambulances call for helicopters for every MVC with more than a dented bumper. The abuse of helicopters by prehospital workers here is staggering.
