New landing trolley for the H145 Westpac Rescue Helicopter
The Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust and GCH Aviation were excited to take delivery of a new landing trolley for the H145 Westpac Rescue Helicopter. Purchase of the state-of-the-art motorised trolley with hydraulic vertical lift function was made possible by a generous grant from Air Rescue & Community Services. Among the many benefits, this new, larger landing trolley will enable the Rescue Helicopter crew to safely and easily load and unload the Stryker stretcher and ICU equipment from the rear of the helicopter when configuring for inter-hospital transfers.
The fully motorised trolley also has hydraulic vertical lift function, allowing the Crew to tilt the H145 when refuelling.
Thank you to the fantastic team at Quality Machining Ltd in Greymouth for our fabulous new trolley. And a very special thank you to Air Rescue & Community Services for making this project possible.
