New Air Ambulance

posted in: Blog | 0

We are pleased to present the new Wales Air Ambulance to be based at Welshpool.

Welshpool Mid-Wales Airport has been a base for the Wales Air Ambulance since 2006. The new helicopter is the third generation, each being larger and carrying more equipment than its predecesor. This new helicopter, an Airbus H145, replaces the previous EC135. The larger body allows more procedures to be carried out in the air as well as travelling further and faster.

For more information and to support the Wales Air Ambulance, please visit their website.

New group and welcome visitors

posted in: Airshows, Blog, Visitors | 0
We are pleased to welcome a new group to Welshpool - the Charlie Sierra Bravo Delta Group, flying a very nice Piper PA28-236 Cherokee Dakota. Welcome to you all!
 
We were also visited by a special 1940 built Cessna 165 Airmaster G-BTDE. Plus, Aerobatic Champion Lauren Richardson arrived in this Cirrus SR20. If that name sound familiar, it's because Lauren is now an airshow regular - you can see her at the Bob Jones Memorial Air Show on 11 June 2017.

Last week, new portacabins were brought in to support the expanding work of the Wales Air Ambulance. The new spaces will be used for additional offices and a hospitality suite.

Watch this space for the fast approaching new Air Ambulance!

Coast Guard

Welshpool is a bit of a distance from the coast so it is not often that we see the Coast Guards! On Friday, HM Coast Guards came in from Caenarfon in a Sikorski S-92A on a training sortie.

Last Friday we were very pleased to see this pair of Hercules transporters passing over the airport. While they are too large to land (or at least take off again!) the Hercules comes in occasionally to practise a touch and go. We hope to see them again soon!
