"The conditions and terrain in this country are some of the most challenging in the world." Airways Programme Manager.

Our Rescue Pilots have to be the best; the most experienced and most highly skilled. This year we need to raise $186,000 to train them to be rescue ready.

Last year the crew responded to close to a 1,000 emergency mission across Canterbury and the West Coast, helping patients in remote places and in critical conditions.

The crew has extensive training requirements; winching, alpine rescue, night operations, flight competency and operation checks are essential to safety and saving lives.

Your donation today will provide the essential training that will save more lives in your community this year.

We rescued over 900 people

in 2017 alone
