Naming Rights Sponsor


Westpac has been the Naming Rights Sponsor of the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service based in Lismore since 1991, and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter in Newcastle since.

One of the most common questions we get asked is ‘Are there any other Westpac Helicopters based across Australia?’. 

The answer is yes, Westpac proudly sponsors 17 rescue helicopters and two rescue boats around the nation.

Some of the amazing facts are highlighted below such as; the 70,000 missions performed by the Services over the past 40 years, there are 13 bases across Australia, on average over 2,000 missions are performed each year, the national helicopter fleet covers 84% of Australia’s population in the summer months.

Westpac’s support is one of the longest running corporate sponsorships in Australia. There are also Westpac sponsored helicopters in New Zealand.
