New Aircraft For Cornish Air Ambulance

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Cornish Air Ambulance has been bestowed with two new aircraft equipped with Night Vision Imaging Systems.

This represents a major upgrade for the service, which will now be able to fly up to 12 hours a day thanks to the night vision equipment.

Previously there have been incidents where the aircraft have been unable to fly to accident scenes due to maintenance issues or weather conditions.

It is thought that with the new technology the air ambulance will be able to attend 50 additional missions every year. It also means that at least one aircraft will be available for 365 days a year.

The upgrade would not have been possible without a significant donation from Victoria Milligan, who lost her husband and daughter in a Padstow boating accident in 2013.

Mrs Milligan raised £270,000, saying it was important for her family to support a Cornish charity.

Lady Mary Holborrow, chairman of the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, said: “I am immensely proud that we are able to provide an even better service to the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.”

“To be able to fly for longer hours, and for longer distances, with the provision of two helicopters based here in Cornwall, is a great achievement for the trust, and I would like to congratulate everyone involved.”

Each year the helicopter service attends around 700 missions. It is funded entirely by voluntary donations and costs around £2.5 million a year.
