With support from DWC, Precision Helicopters Ltd have purchased the iconic Hanger One at Hokitika airport.

Matt and Tammy Newton moved to Hokitika with their family three years ago to start a tourism business. Since COVID, they have diversified and now offer a wider range of services including agricultural spraying and top dressing, hunting, hiking, kayaking trips, DOC work, lifting work and charter flights.

"We are grateful that DWC was able to help finance this venture allowing us to diversify into a wider range of work during there turbulent times."
