The charity's chief executive officer Paula Martin said: “It takes Cornwall Air Ambulance an average of just 12 minutes to reach a patient in Cornwall and 28 minutes to reach patients on the isles of Scilly.
"Being able to fly patients to the hospital most appropriate to their needs saves lives by saving valuable transport time."

"You saw a few guys today, who haven't had a lot of rugby, put their hands up, Dan Lee, Sam Simmonds, people like that, I thought were quite outstanding," Davies told BBC Radio Cornwall.
Damages to be paid to Cornwall Council over a failed outsourcing contract could "run into many millions", a council cabinet member says.

Plymouth Moor View Conservative MP Johnny Mercer said: "You can never eliminate risk completely, but I do think they've done everything physically possible to do so, and I think it's important to communicate that over to the people who live here."

A Devon woman says she isn't giving up on getting Dartmoor hill pony sausages in London's restaurants in a bid to help secure the future of the breed and raise awareness.
Charlotte Faulkner, from the Dartmoor Hill Pony Association, launched the product two years ago to stop meat from culled animals - with culling used to keep constant numbers on the moor - going to waste. Restaurants haven't been interested but she is selling the sausages in Tavistock.Copyright: BBC
She said: "I would have been really upset if there hadn't been a reaction against it. But I hope people will see it's not a massive amount of ponies, and this will help to make them sustainable."

Fishing leaders in Cornwall have raised concerns over the expansion of Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs) around the UK.
The designation of 23 new MCZs - including eight in the south west - mean that 8,000 sq miles of UK waters now have environmental protection.Copyright: BBC
Some conservationists have welcomed the news, but Paul Trebilcock from the Cornish Fish Producers Association commented: "It's madness. A line has been drawn on a map but there is no management plan in place. No-one knows what will and will not be able to continue.
"The majority of fishermen rely on the marine environment being healthy to make a living - they have more interest in keeping it healthy than anybody. To hear the government drawing a line and saying it's all fine doesn't inspire much confidence."
A Plymouth engineering and manufacturing business, Pipex PX, has been sold to the UK subsidiary of a New York Stock Exchange listed global firm.
