We are very grateful for our sponsors

The team at the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust rely on and appreciate the wonderful generosity of our Corporate and Major Sponsors. Without their commitment to help the local community, we simply would be unable to offer a world-class air rescue service and be there for patients in their greatest time of need.
