Established in 1973, we are Australia’s longest serving and original community search and rescue helicopter. We operate 7 days a week, 365 days a year from our base at La Perouse in Sydney and our second base in Moruya on the NSW South Coast.
We have responded to over 23,000 missions in a region spanning from Pittwater down the Northern Beaches, across to The Entrance on the NSW Central Coast, south to the Victorian border and West inland to the Blue Mountains and out to sea.
We work closely with Surf Life Saving NSW, SES, NSW Police, Rural Fire Service, and Australian Search and Rescue. We proudly provide our service at no cost to the community or to any rescued individual.
By choosing the Westpac Life Saver Helicopter (Sydney & South Coast) as your charity beneficiary, you are helping us save lives. It may not be you that needs to be rescued, but it may be someone you know. Every cent you raise or donate will assist us in keeping our aircraft operational, and our crew fully equipped.
