Privately owned Helicopter Logistics has been contracted by the state government to provide bushfire-related services for $25.6 million.

Based in Jandakot Airport, the business specialises in fixed wing and helicopter services for the emergency services, mining and construction industries. That includes aerial services to the state’s Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions in its bushfire mitigation efforts.

Helicopter Logistics will provide at least two rotary wing aircrafts to the department for aerial ignition, fire suppression and associated activities during the event of a bushfire and prescribed burning seasons.

One aircraft will be based in Jandakot for an air attack platform and water-bombing activities during bushfire season, according to tenders.wa.gov.au.

The second aircraft will be based in Bunbury and will be required to deliver prescribed burning and other weather-dependent activities.

The department requires a third aircraft as a substitute for breakdown or servicing requirements.

Its contract with Helicopter Logistics will expire in January 2026.
