Hi,
I looking to find out the differences between the rules in my home country and the UK about HEMS.
In italy HEMS operations are performed according JAR-OPS3. Normally there are a contract between a helicopter company and the local "NHS" to provide an helicopter and a crew. so our "CAA" consider it a commercial operations.
I saw that in UK most of the EMS services are charities. so the operations shouldn't be for reward.
Which rules does apply in UK? JAR-OPS or any other "local" rule?

I have never worked for a HEMS outfit, however my understanding is that they follow JAR OPS. They are certainly heavily regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority.

The "charity" aspect is only who pays the bills to the provider... the pilots, paramedics, engineers and so on are all salaried as far as I am aware.
