As a result of these experiences, this team of professional have a strong working relationship around all the locations of most cattle stations, parks, and indigenous areas throughout Northern Australia.

Evolving and continuing to move forward during the ensuing years the company now provides a valuable helicopter service to all levels of government, corporations and the private sector.

Heli Australia holds all relevant approvals on its air operator’s certificate including charter, aerial work, power line inspections, aerial survey, aerial mustering, stock and feral animal control, the carriage and discharge of firearms, low level flying, external sling loads, search and rescue.
