Filtec long term supporters of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter

Filtec have been sponsors of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter for many years now, and were lucky enough to win a draw to have their logo on the front of the helicopter for 6 months.The Auckland based Westpac Rescue Helicopter is the only rescue helicopter service in New Zealand that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

2006 is the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Services’ 36th year in operation. This is a milestone for the organisation, which started the world's first ever-civilian rescue helicopter service back in 1970. Over the past 36 years, the service has performed more than 12,000 rescues and is internationally recognised for its pioneering work in saving lives.

History

The Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust's origins date back to the establishment of the Rescue Helicopter Service in 1970. That summer, the Auckland Life Saving Association launched a world first in ocean rescue with the provision of the Hiller 12E helicopter. This aircraft was used specifically for the saving of lives from the surf on Auckland's west coast beaches.

In 1990 a Charitable Trust was formed with Trustees selected from the community and business sectors of the greater Auckland region. The primary aim of the Trust is to provide and develop a highly efficient aero medical service for the benefit of the community at large.

International Award

This outstanding achievement was recognised by the world "Association of Aeromedical Services" in 2000 when the Trust was presented with an award for 10,000 accident free missions. For more information on the Westpac Rescue Helicopter service visit their website: www.rescuehelicopter.org.nz
