Similar to our Friends membership but with extended cover of your farm workers and their households living on the farm.
It costs as little as $120 a year to join our Rural Friend of the Rescue Helicopter programme to help keep your local helicopter in the air providing a vital emergency service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. After all, you never know when you or your family might require our services. Funds received go directly to the rescue helicopter in your region.
You will receive a donation certificate, a bumper sticker and certificate to display on your farm with your GPS coordinates to ensure that our crew can find you in an emergency when time is critical.

Flight for Life
Help your local rescue helicopter by turning livestock into life stock.
Farmers know the risks – drought in the summer, floods in the winter, fluctuating pay-outs and exchange rates, grazing conditions and the health and wellbeing of your livestock. One thing you do not have to risk is the availability of a rescue helicopter in your community.
Having access to a local rescue helicopter when you live in remote farmland areas of New Zealand can mean the difference between life and death. Every donation, regardless of size, means we can continue to offer this life-saving service to farmers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
New Zealand’s premier meat processor, Greenlea, have made it easy for you to support your local Rescue Helicopter by enabling you to donate the value of your cattle directly through their service:
- Send your cattle to Greenlea for processing
- Nominate the number of cattle you want to donate
- Greenlea will arrange the donation and send 100% of it to your local rescue helicopter
