Home of Victoria's Emergency Services

Essendon Airport is a critical hub for Victoria's emergency services with over 8,000 incidents per year being attended by Air Ambulance and the Police Air wing.

The proximity to Melbourne’s major hospital is a real factor when it comes to the work done here.

Air Ambulance now has 5 rotary & 4 fixed wing, 69 staff.  Other emergency services include Aero Rescue, The Royal Flying Doctors and the Erickson Air Crane Helicopters.
