He established the Angel of Mercy Helicopter Service, the world’s first fully equipped helicopter air ambulance. In 1972 the Victorian Ambulance Service signed a contract for the exclusive lease of the helicopter, which became the forerunner of the current air ambulance. From then Peninsula Aero Club grew into its current form today.
