The Crew
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service is serviced by a group of dedicated crew members and pilots.
Rotor-Lift Pty Limited employs suitably qualified pilots to fly the rescue helicopter at any time of the day or night and at times in adverse weather conditions. All pilots require a high degree of flying experience and search and rescue expertise.
Tasmania Police provides fully trained and qualified crew members who are responsible for the operation within and surrounding the aircraft. The crew members are the eyes and ears for the pilots who are unable to see what is happening at the rear of the helicopter and also the winch operators.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter

Whenever the rescue helicopter flies on a rescue mission, a qualified crew member needs to be in attendance.

Tasmania Police also provides qualified divers who will be winched out of the rescue helicopter when a person needs to be rescued over water or over a boat. These members are highly trained for this extremely dangerous operation.
The Tasmanian Ambulance Service provides highly qualified paramedics who will attend at all motor vehicle accidents, medical emergencies and will also be winched out of the aircraft to attend to medical emergencies at incidents where the rescue helicopter is unable to land.
