As well as the scheduled NAC service, the Hokitika based aircraft also flew air ambulance and search and rescue flights. Captain Frank Molloy recounted, A recent flight which I had to perform was to locate a disabled fishing boat somewhere off Greymouth in bad weather. We were lucky sighting it only 17 minutes after take-off from Hokitika and a tug from Westport was able to take it in tow later during the night and they reached Westport safely early on the following morning.
