Search & Rescue

John has been closely involved with helicopter emergency services and air search and rescue providers over many years commencing with operational involvement as an on-call rescue pilot before the days of dedicated services through to Chief Pilot of dedicated EMS programs overseas.

More recently John has enjoyed a close working relationship with the New Zealand and Australian helicopter EMS service providers in his capacity as Manager Rotary Wing Unit at CAANZ.

Since establishing TAQ this close association has remained and TAQ has been privileged to have consulted both to, the aviation sector as well as to users of the services such as individual Emergency Services Trusts, DHBs, Ambulance New Zealand, National Ambulance Sector Office (NASO) and helipad operators.
