Let's take a look at some of the aircraft that have flown for GNAAS over the years.

G-NAA helicopter
1994

The first region’s air ambulance began service in 1994 and operated under several liveries on behalf of the ambulance service.

The G-NAAS aircraft made its debut appearance in the trademark green and white.

G-NHAA, G-NHAB and G-NHAC helicopters
2010 - present

As the GNAAS service continued to expand, three helicopters were bought to ease the financial strain of leasing.

From 2010, the charity began replacing its fleet with three Dauphin AS365 N2s.

To this date, G-NHAA (Guardian of the North), G-NHAB (Pride of Cumbria) and G-NHAC are the current fleet saving lives across the North East, North Yorkshire and Cumbria.
