Your Local Rescue Helicopter Service

In a life and death situation, every minute counts, and helicopter rescue – especially in rural or remote locations – is often the patient’s only chance for survival

The Hawke's Bay Rescue Helicopter Trust is a registered charity, dedicated to providing a Rescue Helicopter Service to those who require urgent medical, or search and rescue support, in the Hawke’s Bay region.

Each year our Crew assists in over 300 missions helping those who need urgent medical care and transportation.

Our aim is to keep our life saving services completely free of charge, and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to everyone in our community.
