Preswick was one of the new bases established under the ten-year UK SAR contract awarded to Bristow Helicopters in March 2013. Due to issues with the full certification of the AgustaWestland AW189 search and rescue helicopter, two Sikorsky S-92s were used instead for the first year of operations. The first helicopter arrived in November 2015. The facility was officially opened on 17 December 2015, and became operational on 1 January 2016. The service is available 24 hours a day.
