Eagle Australasia proudly supports local community

Eagle Australasia has been a proud sponsor of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service for the past five years.

Each year the community's own Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is on standby 24 hours a day to help save lives across NSW's Mid North Coast and beyond.

Operating out of three bases in Lismore, Tamworth and Newcastle and with the addition of a new AW139 fleet, the service covers a massive 132,000km² area from the Queensland border to the Hawkesbury, making it one of the leading aeromedical services in Australia.

With an annual budget of about $40 million, patients are not charged for this critical and life-saving service. This is because the local community, together with the NSW Government and corporate sponsors such as Eagle Australasia, provide the funds necessary to ensure the rescue helicopters are there when and where they are needed.

Approximately $12 million is raised annually through sponsorships, volunteering, support activities and events, and partnerships with the local community. Check out their website to find out more about how you can get involved and support this vital service.

Eagle Australasia are proud to assist where they can, providing MRO support and conducting major inspections on the fleet so the Westpac team can concentrate on their missions.
