Westpac Chopper Challenge

Thursday 24th May 2018
Westpac, as part of the annual Chopper Appeal month, will be taking part in the grueling Chopper Appeal Challenge.
This physical challenge is designed by the Air Rescue crew to reflect the challenges they face every day when working in Chopper Country.
10 teams of 4 will be competing for the coveted trophy by facing a set of challenges that test fitness, problem-solving, and teamwork, all whilst raising funds for the Air Rescue Service.
You can help the teams by donating today.

25 Years of Westpac's Support

Thursday 30th May 2018

The much anticipated 25 Years of Westpac's Support celebration will be held on the 30th May at the GCH Aviation Emergency AirCentre.

Westpac and the Air Rescue Trust will co-host a special afternoon tea featuring an exhibition, past crew members and special speeches that celebrate this exceptional relationship.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for photos of this milestone event.

The Air Rescue Emergency Services Open Day will be held later in the year.

Due to the adverse weather conditions this May, we made the tough decision to postpone Open Day. We will keep everyone informed of the new date and any other news here and on Facebook.
