A new Arvo RJ85 for Cobham Aviation Services has arrived in Australia.

The aircraft, registered G-CDYK and painted in the new Cobham colours, touched down at Adelaide shortly after midday on Monday. It will now undergo some maintenance work in Adelaide before it is ferried to Western Australia to start work flying to Gold Fields Australia sites at Granny Smith and Darlot, about 720km north-east of Perth.

It was understood that the RJ85 was equipped with a gravel runway kit and wears a special coating to protect the aircraft’s fuselage.
