Murchison lodge no longer using Robinson helicopters

From Morning Report, 6:45 am on 1 August 2018

A lodge in Murchison will not use Robinson helicopters anymore due to safety concerns with the helicopters. This comes after the death of experienced helicopter pilot Matthew Wallis when his Robinson R44 crashed into Lake Wanaka last week. Felix Borenstein is the owner of the Owen River Lodge in Murchison. He talks to Alex Perrottet.
