The Air Ambulance shares the same helicopter design as the [[Armadillo]] (barring a different livery), thus being based on the [[:wp:Bell 412|Bell 412]]. 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 Vice City, The Air Ambulance was going to be made as the Coastgard Maverick but was cut after the alpha version.

DescriptionEdit

GTA 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 GTA 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 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, red and white Police Maverick can be found on top of one of the hospitals with Ambulance written on the fuselage. They are a re-skined version Police Maverick. Like the Police Maverick it also lacks a radio.

LocationsEdit

GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

Grand Theft Auto VEdit


The most common place to find the Air Ambulance helicopter is at the Central Los Santos Hospital.

Trivia Edit

  • Both sides of the Air Ambulance's nose bear cursively written text. Due to the poor quality of its texture, the words are somewhat hard to identify.
    • "VCS - 911" is also written on both sides of the helicopter at the turbine engines. 911 is clearly referring to the main emergency number in the United States, but the "VCS" abbreviation, whether coincidental or not, is also a short form for GTA Vice City Stories' title.
  • Although the Air Ambulance does have non-driver seats, they are inaccessible (same goes for the Armadillo). So it is really only a one man vehicle.
  • Unlike Armadillo, the Air Ambulance has the same door sound as the low-grade cars, only with a higher pitch.
  • Despite the Air Ambulance appears in GTA V , it still refered as Police Maverick when entered.
