The Devon Air Ambulance Trust has launched its night flight programme as a part of extending their services into the evening hours. You can read more about it here - http://www.daat.org/nightflight.
The long and short of it is that I have done most of the work now to bring this to Christow. The landing site has been prepped, the parish council and hall committee are supportive, the local community responder teams are keen all we need now is a bit of kit to allow the HEMS dispatchers to remotely fire up the lights to allow the helicopter to land.
Night flights will allow for local people to be airlifted to hospital after sunset, something that cannot be done currently. 2016 has already seen several visits by the DAAT helicopter - a hugely valuable service that we all hope to never use.
We only need £1530 to complete the work and put this service live. I am seeking large donations from local government at the moment but if you are a local company or generous individual then please give what you can.
