Bolkow 105

In 2005 the Airfield was approached by Bond Helicopters the operator of the Devon Air Ambulance Helicopter at that time, seeking a home for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT). In 2007 the DAAT’s Bolkow Helicopter moved into the Flying Club’s Hangar at Eaglescott and after a two year planning process with North Devon Council the DAAT built their new hangar and operation facility on land donated by the Airfield.  Eaglescott Airfield also donated a 125year lease for the use of the airfield, so the Trust has a completely ‘Free operating base’.

5th April 2017 marks the 10th Anniversary of The Devon Air Ambulance ‘Life Saver to the North Devon Community’ operating from Eaglescott Airfield.
