The company said it would continue to provide helicopter emergency services for RACQ CQ Rescue Helicopter Service in Mackay and RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Service until “at least” 2024 with Bell 412 aircraft. It has been working with the two organisations since 2013.

Further, the company is part of engineering support services company Babcock International Group.

Also part of Babcock International Group is Babcock Offshore Services Australasia (previously Bond Helicopters), which supports oil and gas clients.
