Our Aircraft

taranaki air ambulance

Our Plane

Cessna 421 Golden Eagle

The air ambulance is a Cessna 421 Golden Eagle, pressurised aircraft. Our fundraising allows us to ensure that equipment is up to date and fit for purpose.

Our service grows in demand as patients need to be transferred to access medical specialised care not available in Taranaki. There will be no drop in the standard of care whilst on board so as a service provider it is our duty to cater to the demands of the Taranaki District Health Board. That is done within strict budget guidelines, as well as providing the best standard of care to those who use our service, the people of Taranaki.
