    What are these words "proper military" I see before me? Are you trying to say that painting something green is insufficient to make it military?
    German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
    German 2: Private? I am a general!
    German 1: That is the bad news.

    We have 6 AW 139, right? Paint 5 bright orance and fit them out permanently as the best air ambulance you can imagine. paint one in a civilian govt livery and fit it out as a VIP transport.

    Then replace them with a 10t chopper that also replaces the S92s for SAR and bring back SAR to the Air Corps. And buy some more of the same chopper for when we have a ship to put them on (I vote Cougar, but AW 149 and *hawk are options too. AW149 would probably benefit from significant communality with AW 139)

    You were going grand until you decided to bring SAR back to the air corps.

    The reason i suggested it is that this kind of thing is a state function that should be fulfilled byt the state. If the AC can't fulfill it we need to look at why.

    Because we have a Coast Guard. That is their function.
    It is a secondary military tasking, and part of ATCA. Every other military is moving away from providing Frontline SAR.
    When the Air Corps had it, it could do little else operationally.

    Yeah, my gripe is more with the helos being run by a private company than with which arm of the government flies them. Given that companies need to make a profit and the state doesn't it rarely is cheaper ll told.

    Hi Guys who ever operates it they are both carrying out a wonderful lifesaving service, yesterday at UHG Galway Air Corps 112 arrived in with a patient, they lifted off the pad to allow Rescue 115 land, Rescue 115 lifted from the pad to the football pitch to allow Air Corps 112 land again to collect their Paramedic then lifted and Rescue 118 landed, three in at the one time. There are pictures from UHG on the below links, scroll through them as there are a good few pics.
