DescriptionEdit

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories Edit

Like the Armadillo, the Air Ambulance is a relatively large helicopter that nevertheless possesses relatively good speed, with moderately steep pitches that help increase its acceleration at the expense of losing altitude faster. Like most service vehicles in GTA, it lacks a radio. During the creation of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the Air Ambulance was going to be made as the Coastguard Maverick, but was cut after the alpha version.

The Air Ambulance can be used to activate the Air Rescue side missions, the airborne equivalent of the Ambulance's Paramedic side mission. Completion of the side mission will boast the player's maximum health.

Grand Theft Auto V Edit

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Air Ambulance (unofficial name) returns. In fact, it is a variant of the Police Maverick with a different paint job and decals, and not a separate vehicle as it was in Vice City Stories. The Air Ambulance has no purpose in the game and can only be found on certain helipads.

  • In the PS2 version, the Air Ambulance features a radio, unlike in the PSP version.
