Captain Adam Smith
Adam learned to fly in Florida and spent two years working there, before returning to the UK. Much of his early experience was gained flying helicopters offshore for the oil and gas industry in Aberdeen and the Shetland Islands.
In recent years, Adam joined Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance as a HEMS pilot where he flew in both the MD902 and the AW169 helicopters. Moving back to his native Cornwall, Adam is now the chief pilot for Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust. He is looking forward to the challenges of the job, including the unpredictable Cornish weather.
