For over 25 years, Cornwall Air Ambulance has been providing a vital helicopter emergency service to Cornish residents and visitors alike. Flying 365 days a year and attending around 1,000 emergency missions every year, this service has often made the difference between life and death.
From its new purpose-built charity headquarters and operational facility at Newquay Cornwall Airport, Cornwall’s air ambulance helicopter arrives on scene at an incident in an average of 12 minutes from a 999 call.
Cornwall Air Ambulance receives no direct government or National Lottery funding, and so relies entirely on the generosity of our supporters - both in Cornwall and further afield. In 2013, around £2 million will need to be raised to keep this lifesaving helicopter flying.
The new headquarters to the south side of Newquay Cornwall Airport makes the charity the first in the UK to have its charity offices and operational facility in the same location and secures the future of the charity for the future.
