Quality, Safety and Environment
No one cares what you know until they know you care.
We strive to uphold the highest level of quality, safety and environment management. Building long-term relationships with our clients can only occur with an open, comprehensive and professional approach to these important matters. We hire experienced people and we listen to what they have to say. Staff Consultation forms a regular part of our risk assessment process. Dedicated project managers ensure the relevant risks for each job are covered in Safe Work Procedures and Method Statements. We encourage staff and clients to report any hazards or incidents because these are an opportunity to improve. We expect safety and efficiency from its pilots. Our crews are experienced and receive regular proficiency checks for each type of work they conduct. Regular Site Audits ensure standards are maintained in the field and managers trained in Root Cause Analysis follow up any reported hazards or incidents. We also use independent external auditors to give us an independent assessment of our performance.
Our Integrated Management system is externally audited and accredited to the international Quality (ISO9001) and Safety (AS/NZS 4801) standards. Our environmental management system meets the standard for Environment Management (ISO14001) and we also operate a comprehensive carbon offset program.

We insist upon daily preventative maintenance on our helicopter fleet. Our experience maintenance team performs thorough 100 hourly inspections on every helicopter. Our maintenance engineers can service our aircraft at home base or in the field, nationwide.
Our ground support equipment receives the same attention to detail we give to our helicopters. Our ground crews are required to perform daily safety inspections, and we routinely perform spot inspections in the field. Our fuel trucks and heli-deck tankers are stored out of the weather when not on contract.
“By operating a Safety Management System we hold ourselves to the same high safety standards as major airlines.”
