Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust

Cornwall Air Ambulance flies over 800 missions each year bringing vital emergency medical treatment in minutes to patients across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. We don’t receive any government support towards running costs and rely on the essential generosity and dedication of our supporters to keep flying, people like you.

Taking to the skies in 1987, Cornwall Air Ambulance was the first air ambulance in the UK. It has now completed more than 28,000 missions, saving countless lives. Cornwall Air Ambulance is on scene on average in just 12 minutes in mainland Cornwall and less than 30 minutes on the Isles of Scilly. The paramedic aircrew provide pre-hospital critical care at the scene of the incident and can go on to fly the patient to specialist hospital units in Cornwall, Devon or Bristol and even as far as Swansea.

We rely on our supporters for the running costs of £3.5 million a year. Anyone could need this service at any time whether local or visitor, young or old. For us all, Cornwall Air Ambulance is a reassuring presence, and it’s all thanks to the support of people like you.
