Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) is the People’s Helicopter – saving and improving lives in every corner of Scotland, 365 days a year.

As the country’s only charity-funded air ambulance, SCAA relies entirely on public donations to fuel its life-saving flights that bring help and hope to those suffering serious injury or illness.

Since the service launched in 2013, the charity has responded to hundreds of time-critical medical emergencies and trauma incidents, including road traffic collisions, industrial accidents, equestrian, sporting and leisure accidents, strokes and heart attacks, falls and agricultural injuries.

An integral part of Scotland’s frontline emergency response network, SCAA can reach 90% of Scotland’s population within 25 minutes from its base in Perth, including remote and rural areas that are difficult to access by road.  Being able to fly expert paramedic care to the scene of an emergency and then provide rapid air transfer to a specialist hospital for advanced treatment can make a critical difference.

SCAA is a proven life-saving service that needs your support – to keep it flying to those in desperate need of an air ambulance, when speed and urgent medical attention are critical factors in their chance of survival.

By choosing to leave a gift in your will to Scotland's only charity air ambulance, you are helping us to continue to provide frontline, time-critical care to the communities of Scotland for years to come.
