In this August Newsletter you hear about Pip, a woman from Feilding who suffered an aneurysm and was quickly flown to Wellington where she was able to make a full recovery.

You also read of premature baby Zachariah, who was rushed to Wellington Hospital from Palmerston North via our Westpac Rescue Helicopter, being born 16 weeks early.

We introduce you to one of our Westpac Rescue Helicopter Pilots, Dylan. Dylan hails from South Africa where he worked at an anti-poaching organisation before flying rescue helicopters. Finally, you learn about Jarrod's Life Flight experience, after he rolled his ute whilst working out in the steep, grassy hills of rural Mount Bruce.
