Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance
Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) was formed in 2012 and launched our helicopter air ambulance in May 2013 to assist the Scottish Air Ambulance Service (SAAS) to deliver front-line care to time-critical emergencies across Scotland. SCAA provides a fully equipped medical helicopter that can be deployed from its central base at Perth Airport to incidents across the length and breadth of Scotland.
Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance works in close cooperation with the Scottish Ambulance Service who provide the paramedic staff that crew the helicopter. SAS tasks the SCAA helicopter across Scotland through their Ambulance Control Centres.
Our charity is not supported by any statutory funding and the service is funded solely by donations from private individuals, companies and community trusts.
Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance Charitable purpose:
'The emergency relief of sickness and injury and the protection of human life by the provision of an air ambulance across Scotland'
In time-critical medical emergencies we have identified four core aims:
- Save life
- Preserve life
- Increase survival rates
- Assist the speed of recovery
