Willie Entwisle Trustee Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance

Willie joined Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance after a 35-year career in the Royal Navy, where he specialised as a helicopter pilot. He commanded a Lynx helicopter squadron at RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset and the Naval Air Station at Culdrose in Cornwall.

A graduate of the University of Exeter and of King’s College London, Willie has spent all his adult life in the West Country, except when at sea or posted elsewhere by the Navy. He sits on the Armed Forces Pay Review Body, is Chair of the South West Rivers Association and has a wide range of interests.

Willie is a keen potter, gardener and enjoys chasing a ball around any sort of court as much as his dogs do on a walk. He is married to Issy and lives in Devon.
