We need your support now, more than ever as we continue to support the people of Taranaki.
The Taranaki Air Ambulance Trust was established in 2006 to provide a consistent, professional air ambulance service for the people of Taranaki. The not for profit trust operates from the facility and hangar at the NP airport and flies a Beechcraft King Air C90A, pressurised plane. The trust is responsible for ensuring the aircraft and equipment is well maintained and up to date, to provide a comfortable and safe transfer of patients to specialist care. Our aircraft transfer an average of 7 people per week for the treatment they cannot receive locally.
Our fundraising seeks support from the local community to provide this essential service.
The Taranaki Air Ambulance Trust supports a fixed-wing air ambulance service for Taranaki, taking patients to specialist treatment not available in the region. The aircraft is a fully equipped Beechcraft King Air C90A under contract to Taranaki Health Board.
Fundraising from the community assists us to support the costs of air ambulance equipment and the service for the Taranaki people.
