Supporting Midlands Air Ambulance Charity
In 2015, the Midlands Air Ambulance flew 126 missions that involved a motorcycle accident. This equates to one flight every three days where the Midlands Air Ambulance was deployed in support of a biker. Looking at the big picture, in 2015, around one-fifth of all Midlands Air Ambulance attended road traffic accidents involved a motorcycle rider and with average costs of £2500 per mission, these 126 incidents would have cost in excess of £315,000 – all funded through the dedicated support of charitable fundraising activities.

Biker Air lifted to Selly Oak
Tony was involved in a collision with a car whilst waiting at temporary traffic lights. A car driver made a u-turn without looking properly, resulting is a serious life-changing injury for Tony. The Midlands Air Ambulance quickly air lifted Tony to Selly Oak Hospital for emergency treatment.
I can’t speak highly enough of the emergency services and especially the Air Ambulance for what they did for me on that day – Tony Roach, Biker.
Essential roadside critical care
Charlotte suffered a broken leg and elbow following a road traffic accident, where she had been riding as a pillion with her partner. The vehicle in front, having missed a turn, performed an emergency stop. Charlotte’s partner’s motorcycle lost grip, was unable to stop in time and Charlotte was thrown into the air.
I had already known that a lot of bikers are airlifted by Midlands Air Ambulance but I can now truly say that they do fantastic work and help save a lot of lives – Charlotte Lloyd, Mother of three.
I would not be here without them!
One minute Tom was on his bike, commuting home on his Suzuki – the next, he was lying in a field, surrounded by people, with a broken back and eight broken ribs. The impact on Tom’s life was dramatic, but he considers himself one of the luck ones.
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is amazing, I’m so thankful that the crew came to my rescue, and I honestly don’t think I would be here without them – Tom Milligan, former warehouse worker.
They said it was similar to a bomb blast
A head on collision resulting in two punctured lungs, a shattered pelvis, amputated leg and major blood loss. Within seven minutes, the Air Ambulance team had John in the hands of specialist trauma care at Selly Oak Hospital.
If it wasn’t for Midlands Air Ambulance I wouldn’t be here. The road journey would have been too long and I wouldn’t have made it – John Brown, former Paramedic.
Forever in your debt
With a severe head injury and multiple fractures, paramedics knew John would not survive the road journey to hospital. In a race against time, Midlands Air Ambulance flew John to Stoke Royal Infirmary.
Whilst there were many heroes along the way, had it not been for the Midlands Air Ambulance responding to John’s emergency, there would have been no John for them to save – John Smith, Biker
