The Northland Emergency Services Trust (NEST) is looking to loaning $10 million from the Northland Regional Council in order to replace their two rescue helicopters. The loan from the council will have better interest rates than any bank, ultimately saving them $200,000 a year, reports NZ Herald. They would have to pay the loan back within five years. NEST is looking to purchase one Sikorsky S-76C helicopter and renting the other S-76C with an “option to purchase.”
