Our clients expect the best, both from their aircraft performance and their flightwear. Jays deliver the kind of quality these professionals demand. Our flightsuits are made to order and made to measure for each individual. Utilising our in-house resources, we manufacture the materials for the flightsuits, cut them to size, customise as required, sew and embroider name tags, unit flashes, insignia...whatever the client needs. Naturally, some of our clients prefer to have no 'tell tale' detailing at all. Others require 'Hi-Viz' as standard, alongside the best in weather-proofing and flame retardant properties. Whatever your requirements as a unit, team, crew or squadron, Jays Flightwear will deliver the goods! Our flightsuits can be customised in a wide range of styles; extra pockets, heavy duty 'rescue' epulettes, leg pockets, knife pockets, hi-viz flashes, name/unit/insignia, lightweight, heavyweight, windproof, rainproof, flame retardant, slash resistant...whatever you need in a flight suit, Jays can provide it. Join our client list today! We look forward to working with you.

Client Name: London Air Ambulance


London's Air Ambulance service, otherwise known as the Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS), is called out in major trauma cases, when a few extra minutes can make the difference between life and death.

History: A report from the Royal College of Surgeons in 1988 found that too many victims of trauma were dying unnecessarily because of a delay in the time it took the emergency services to reach them. The Helicopter Emergency Medical Services, a registered charity, was set up as a result. HEMS began to fly from the rooftop of the Royal London hospital in 1990 and by 2005 had flown some 17,000 missions.
Who's the boss? HEMS is tasked by the London Ambulance Service and has roughly the same area of coverage - the area inside the M25 London motorway. The standard crew is two pilots (Captain and Co-pilot), a doctor and a paramedic. The team will sometimes be accompanied by another doctor or paramedic undergoing training.

How to spot them? The HEMS helicopter is bright red, the medical crew wear bright orange flight suits and the pilots red flight suits, so you're unlikely to mistake them for anyone else.

Your local service: HEMS flies only to major trauma incidents anywhere within the M25 boundary from the helipad on the roof of the Royal London Hospital. Major trauma incidents are categorised as serious road traffic accidents, motor vehicle/pedestrian accidents, falls from above two storeys, stabbings, shootings, 'one unders' on public transport, severe burns and industrial injuries.
Want to join them? Doctors are seconded to the air ambulance service by the NHS, likewise paramedics from the London Ambulance Service
