There was a published study in either JAMA or Annals of Emerg Med back 
around 1990 that attempted to measure patient outcomes in ground vs air 
evacuation from the scenes of Motor Vehicle Accidents. If memory serves, 
they determined that outcomes were not significantly affected when the 
patient was less than 18 ground miles from the receiving trauma center, 
regardless of the mode of transport.

Sorry I can't be of more help..
