Industry Support for Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust

The Air Rescue Group (ARG), a collective of emergency rescue helicopter providers comprising all the current ACC contract holders, has committed to supporting and assisting the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust (TRHT) to ensure that the best possible rescue helicopter service can be maintained for the Taranaki region.

This support will include assistance with a detailed review of current operations, consideration of options for changes in the structure of operations, support with key operational personnel including pilots and assistance with fundraising from both the local community and other agencies.

Mark Masters Chair of TRHT stated “we are delighted to have the support of the industry members who collectively will bring an immense amount of knowledge and experience to assist TRHT with its current issues. Our first priority is to preserve the value invested by the community to date in delivering what is unquestionably an excellent service”.

Ross Black Chair of ARG stated that ARG was well positioned to support its members and confident that an acceptable and workable solution would be found to ensure that the Taranaki region would continue to have a high quality rescue helicopter service.
