A newly-recruited helicopter emergency services officer has told the story of his first winching rescue - on his second day on the job.


A new $72 million aeromedical base is set to be built at Brisbane Airport, including aircraft hangars, an administration building, and basic medical facilities, aiding the state’s capacity for regional patient and donor transfers throughout Queensland.


The first Pilatus PC-24 bound for Pel-Air under its contract with NSW Ambulance is nearing completion in Switzerland, Australian Aviation can reveal.


The agreement, which officially begins in January 2024, will see the airline supply four Beechcraft King Air aircraft, pilots and engineering support.


The new contract mirrors a similar long-standing agreement the operator holds with Victoria’s state health department, and marks the end of the NSW government’s 19-year partnership with the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
