Can someone ID this Helicopter Please

Yesterday, while sitting in my room, this flew over. I realise that it is an Air Ambulance, but does anyone know type of helicopter it was.

To answer your question - Looks like a Agusta Westland AW169, I get them coming over quite a bit, as the air ambulance use them! Nice looking helicopters

Thanks for the information. There is not any Helicopter topic that is open or that is in the categories that you have stated. Stay safe and well.

This one appears to be a Leonardo/AgustaWestland AW169, you can find more information about it from here or on other Google sites:

@BinaryChess sometimes it helps to give a personal touch to a welcome message instead of copy pasting what the moderators use 🤐

Yes, I’ve got the app, but it didn’t show up

Do you know of any reliable radar that picks up military aircraft by any chance?

Maybe ADSB tracker tracker? That can pick up military aircraft

A tip is to search the callsign in the internet, probably you will get some photos of planespotters who would also identify the aircraft

Many of them will still be hidden. However as this is not a military aircraft, it should still show up on FR24 or other similar tracking apps.

Good old Leonardo AW169! These things are super popular in law enforcement and HEM stuff. They’re a twin engine helicopter typically cruising about 160 knots, really cool machines.
