Safety comes first.

The most important consideration before any operation is conducted is the safety of the operator, the client and the general public.

Prior to commencement, the Chief Pilot (Tom Niedrich) will conduct a feasibility check in accordance with CASA requirements (see below).

Once the basic criteria have been satisfied we can proceed with a JSA (Job Safety Analyses).

Depending on the operation, a risk assessment may also be required, including mitigation strategies and emergency procedures.


Licences cover CASA, Health and Safety, First Aid and more.
