Boaties in distress could be res- cued quicker with the addition of an aircraft to Coastguard North- ern Region s rescue fleet. The new Coastguard Air Patrol aircraft is expected to substan- tially increase the organisations search and rescue capabilities in the popular boating areas of the Hauraki Gulf, including around Waiheke, Kawau and Great Bar- rier islands and the Coromandel. Coastguard Air Patrol, a Cessna C182T, will be the only aircraft in the Auckland region that is daytime search specific. With a targeted response time of less than 20 minutes from callout to take-off, the aircraft will be a welcome sight for troubled boaties. Coastguard Northern Region president Roly Linstrom says the new aircraft features the same specifications as used by Civil Air Patrol in the United States which will be invaluable during search and rescue missions. Coastguard Air Patrol, with a cruise speed of 130 knots and a search speed of 80 knots, is able to sweep an area much faster than surface vessels meaning there is a higher probability for target detection. Specialising in visual search, the aircraft can also be more effec- tive than a helicopter when tasked with a wide search area. Cannabis plot found on DOC land Police are calling for public help with investigations into a plot of cannabis plants found growing on Department of Conservation land in the Orapiu area. A police spokesperson says investigations are continuing and any further information can be given in confidence direct to the Waiheke police on 372-1150 or through the Crimestoppers line 0800-555-111. Police made three arrests last week. Two were made on Febru- ary 9. The first was a 51-year-old woman from Ostend for two counts of assault. The second was a 33-year-old man from Rocky Bay who was arrested for assaulting a woman. The following day a 28-year- old man of no fixed abode was arrested for burglary.
