The Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust operates the Westpac Rescue Helicopter, based out of the Heliport at Mechanics Bay in Auckland.
The BK117-850 D2 Helicopter used by Westpac is one of the most commonly used helicopters in the world for rescue work.
Seen here in these photos are ZK-HLN departing Mechanics Bay, and the bottom photo in a rescue demonstration.
ZK-HKZ is also operated out of Auckland.
The new television documentary series "Code 1" is on TVNZ, Thursday nights at 8 pm, showing
real life rescues performed by the team at Westpac Rescue.
I take my hat off to the whole team at Westpac Rescue for their high level professionalism and
care for people who need their service. Keep up the good work.
