    not necessarily a bad thing of course
    Not in the same way it seems. This is HEMS.
    For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.

      CHC was banned from carrying out air ambulance flights a few years ago by the IAA for violating aviation law.

                Think so yes, for now…. HSE has gone to tender to bring it under their wing (pun not intended)

                see previous post, Sloane is taking HSE to court having failed to win the tender

                • Strangely ICAA has a tender out for a 4x4 Rapid Response Vehicle (to be based in Mayo)

                  they are obviously going to keep that part of the model which is good
