About the owl Our owlet’s tranquil location made us look to nature for inspiration for our design. Sycamore seeds are natural helicopters, reflecting our helicopter, Helimed 65 and Great Western Air Ambulance charity’s distinctive green and blue livery shades are woven into the design. Each of the 97 seeds represents an emergency that GWAAC was tasked to in Bath in 2017. We hope that Bob will help raise awareness about Bath’s local air ambulance charity. It’s yours, it’s a charity, keep it flying!
