YORKSHIRE Air Ambulance have launched an official iPhone App to enable supporters to keep up to date with the latest news from the life-saving charity.

The app enables supporters to track the HM98 & HM99 helicopters across the region from week to week, amongst other special features.

Abby McClymont, Marketing and Communications Manager at YAA, explained: “We are really excited about the new app, we’re confident that our supporters will really like it.

“Nothing like this has been done by another Air Ambulance Charity in the UK, so we’re sure we’re the first.

“We have designed the app to appeal to all ages, both our younger, newer supporters right through to people who are long-standing followers of our charity.”

Social media has become an important communication tool for the Air Ambulance in recent years, as increasing numbers follow the charity on both Facebook and Twitter.

Features include a mission tracker, which gives you exclusive information about where both the YAA helicopters have flown each week across the region, as well as access to latest facts, figures and information from the charity which can then be shared with others through Facebook and Twitter pages.

To download the Yorkshire Air Ambulance iPhone app, visit the iTunes store and search ‘Yorkshire Air Ambulance’. It costs £1.99, with profits donated directly to the charity.
