The support from the community enables us to provide a professional service for 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 Cessna 421, pressurised plane. The trust is responsible for ensuring the aircraft and equipment is well maintained and up to date, to provide comfortable and safe transfer of patients to specialist care. Our aircraft transfer an average of 7 people per week for treatment they cannot receive locally.
Our fundraising seeks support from the local community to provide this essential service.
More about us
The Taranaki Air Ambulance Trust operates a fixed wing air ambulance service for Taranaki, taking patients to specialist treatment not available in the region. We operate a fully equipped Cessna 421 aircraft under contract to Taranaki Health Board.
Fundraising from the community assists us to keep our equipment and aircraft fully maintained and up to date. Our current fundraising campaign is for new engines which are required after 1600 hours of flying.
