Saving lives together for 40 years

Life Flight

When you look up this summer, you will likely hear the distinctive sound of our red and yellow Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

The chopper has been flying above our homes for four decades – and this month we mark 40 years of saving lives together with Westpac. During this time, our crews have flown thousands of missions and helped save countless lives. These are parents, siblings, colleagues, neighbors that have returned
safely home thanks to the support of Westpac, and the community.
