REVEALED: Multi-million dollar project rising from ground

RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service has been anticipating this moment for what feels like a lifetime.

The new twin bay hangar facility is finally seeing progress with the walls of the bay up today.

2017 is set to be the year of growth and opportunity for the service with the staff and crew at the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service very excited to see the addition of the walls to the new hangar.

This project will see the expansion of the organisation and will go a long way to ensuring the service will always be available to the people who need it.

Mark Fewtrell, spokesperson from RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service says, "It is exciting to see things really happening after all the planning that has gone into this project.

"The benefits and opportunities it will bring to the service when completed are enormous.

"It will ensure the service can continue to grow and keep up with increasing demand in the region”.

With the official opening of the new hangar expected to be in late August, the team at the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service are biting at the bit to get in and start their next journey in a well awaited facility.
