Community investment

Conducting fire control operations for Bushfire NT as well as agricultural and environmental spraying services to Northern Territory based clients, enables Aerotech NT to maintain large capacity, well equipped, purpose-built application Air Tractor aircraft based in the Northern Territory.

Having this fleet of aircraft based permanently in the Northern Territory provides a reliable resource available at short notice for a range of emergency situations such as fires, marine oil spill, outbreaks of pest and disease, flood relief and search and rescue.

Aerotech NT’s fleet of aircraft also provides aerial agricultural services to government, Indigenous and private landholders throughout the Northern Territory.
