Prince William, a former air ambulance pilot, voiced his support and admiration for members of the air ambulance community who have continued to work relentlessly even at the height of the ongoing pandemic. The Duke of Cambridge recalled his own efforts and work with the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) in a deeply personal letter he addressed to Air Ambulances UK marking the beginning of Air Ambulance Week.
He wrote: “Having seen first-hand the incredible work of air ambulance teams both on the front line and behind the scenes, I hold a profound respect for all that you do.
“Whether you are part of the critical care team bringing vital medical support to patients when every second counts;
“An engineer who ensures that crews can be safely deployed at a moment’s notice;
“Or a volunteer working to keep the service running, the country owes yoy an enormous debt of gratitude.”
Air Ambulances UK is the official national organisation supporting, representing and advocating the lifesaving work of the UK’s air ambulance sector.
