Nexxis assist RACQ LifeFlight Rescue with charity donationNexxis deliver video scope for not-for-profit organisation after they received a donation.
Solutions specialist Nexxis has played a part in delivering a video scope to RACQ LifeFlight Rescue after they received a donation from an Australian couple in March this year.
The donating couple, who reside on a cattle property in Queensland, chose to support the charity because they understood the importance of life-saving aeromedical services to rural and remote areas of Australia.
For RACQ LifeFlight to continue their services successfully, the not-for-profit organisation required a new ViZaar Vucam to carry out scheduled and unscheduled inspections on their aircraft engines.
RACQ LifeFlight’s Senior Base Engineer Mike Smit was overwhelmed by the donation and happy they were able to find the right solution for their aircraft.
“Nexxis were extremely helpful in selecting the unit that would best suit our needs and budget,” Smit said.
“The solutions specialist we dealt with, Adam Walsh, had great knowledge of the product and a good understanding of our needs.”
LifeFlight is one of the largest aero-medical operators in Australia and the video scope provided by Nexxis will be a major asset in their toolbelt for maintaining the entire fleet of three air ambulance jets and 10 search and medical retrieval helicopters.
Smit also believes the solution has provided the option for them to make faster and better decisions in the field so they can stay in the air longer and save lives.
“The Vucam we purchased certainly makes inspecting those ‘hard to reach’ places much more accurate and less time consuming,” Smit said.
“The quality of the recording also helps when we need to send the video off to other people for feedback.
“It will help us carry out the required inspection and return the aircraft to service promptly in order to support the local community.”
