Eagle Technology supports the ARHT
ARHT, the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust, is the Trust that runs the Auckland based Westpac Rescue Helicopter. The Auckland Westpac Rescue Helicopter does not receive direct government funding and relies upon the support of the community to survive.
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.
