The four emergency medical helicopters are each located at a separate base in Skive, Billund, Ringsted and Aalborg, respectively.

Strategically placed

The bases are strategically placed to ensure optimal coverage in the parts of the Denmark which are located far from specialised treatment centres. This may, for example, be trauma centres and hospitals, which perform emergency balloon angioplasty in connection with a blood clot in the heart or burns units.

The map below shows base locations and helicopter flight time. The fourth helicopter, which became operational on 2 January 2019, flies from a temporary location in Aalborg Airport, until a permanent base has been established at Saltum, as shown on the map.
