Aerolight is a family business, owned by siblings Lee and Mark Furst. Connecting towns and cities is personal us. Our dad, Paul, was struck on the head by a Bobcat 15T front end loader in Swan Hill, Victoria. With serious brain injuries, Swan Hill District Health urgently needed to get Paul to a bigger city hospital, equipped for the injury. From Swan Hill airport, he was airlifted by Air Ambulance to The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne.
Without a reliable, quality airport, loved ones are left without access to critical services. The good news is that Paul eventually made a full recovery. The bleed on his brain stopped and he passed the test to count backwards in 7s from 100.
