PYTCH Air – the plane making its journey along the motorway will be raising funds for GWAAC

Pytch Air

PytchAir will be transported to its new home on Saturday 27th February

It’s not every day that you see a jet plane travelling down the motorway and into central Bristol – and this one, in particular, is a Boeing 727!

On Saturday 27th February, PYTCH Air will be travelling from Cotswold Airport in Kemble to its new home at PYTCH HQ in Brislington, where it will be used as some unique office space for the event technology company. The transport of the aircraft will involve a police escort and road disruption as it makes its way along the M5, M4 and M32 at around 20mph.

Why are we telling you this?

Because on its journey, PYTCH Air will be raising awareness and funds for Great Western Air Ambulance Charity – with a text to donate number along its side.

Part of PYTCH’s mission is to use their privilege and resources to make positive impacts, and so Founder, Johnny Palmer, got in touch with our charity team to ask how they could make the most of this opportunity to help raise awareness of our charity and help keep our helicopter flying by bringing in some donations.

Johnny said: “PYTCH have chosen to support GWAAC because of the critical service they provide to the community.  While we are moving a Boeing 727 down a motorway and having interesting and curious conversations about aviation, GWAAC are using flight to save lives – and that is something we really want to get behind and support.”

The team at PYTCHAir will be live streaming the move on their social channels including Facebook from 9:00.
