Update: Dorset's air ambulance back in the air after fault fixed
10:20am Sunday 15th December 2013 in News
THE Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance has been given the all clear to fly.
It was grounded at the end of last week along with a fleet of the same model of helicopter as a precaution when an issue arose in one of the aircraft in another part of the county.
A technical fault was then discovered on the Dorset helicopter.
Engineers have now rectified the problem and the helicopter was declared fully operational at 10.50am today.
The EC135 is also the model of helicopter that crashed on a pub in Glasgow, killing ten people.
An initial report from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) issued this week said there was ''no evidence of major mechanical disruption of either engine'' of the Police Scotland helicopter as it returned from an operation in Dalkeith, Midlothian, on the night of the crash.
