Founded in 2000, the TECT Rescue Helicopter service has touched the lives of thousands of patients.
Today you are invited to come along and view behind the scenes and chat to the incredible local men and women involved within the life-saving service. See the helicopter up close and personal. Have your photo taken on the helicopter. Our rescue helicopter can be airborne in 10 minutes, and, in a life-or-death situation, this speed and agility can make all the difference. The timely assistance that Rescue helicopters provide can reduce disability and improve survival – the sooner treatment begins, the greater chance of patient recovery. They are only partially funded by a government contract, so rely heavily on the generosity of sponsors and the community to help fund the shortfall that allows us to be rescue ready 24/7, 365 days of the year. Zealandier Tours is a financial supporter of the local Rescue Helicopter. Includes: Door to door transport, attraction entry fees + lunch @ Whipped Baker Cafe.
