Centreline Limited, owned by Pula Aviation Services Limited who are based in Guernsey, has acquired the trading name and key assets of Capital Air Ambulance. The deal means that Centreline will acquire the two King Air 200 series aircraft operated by Capital Air Ambulance, related ground ambulances and a significant suite of specialist medical equipment as part of Pula Aviation’s strategy for growth.
As part of the Pula Aviation Services Group, Capital Air Ambulance’s unrivalled reputation of high-quality standards, quality asset base and strategic alliances synergises with PASL’s in-house King Air maintenance expertise in Guernsey and integrates into Centreline’s existing aircraft operations, airworthiness infrastructure and FBO facilities at Bristol Airport, which will become the new home base for Capital Air Ambulance.
To ensure the provision of its unique bed-to-bed service, a team of medical specialists are on hand to assess, plan and deliver each mission be it in air or on ground. Leading the medical team for Capital is Medical Director Dr Rowan Hardy, an experienced physician who will be focussed on patient care whilst taking an active role in the safety program and standard operating procedures of an integrated medical and aviation team.
With its medical experts available 24/7, the Capital Air Ambulance team will also work closely with the NHS to provide patients an inter-UK hospital-to-hospital transfer by air or ground ambulance, to alleviate pressure on NHS ambulance services and medical teams.
