Heliflite’s authorised Robinson helicopter sales and service centre at Jandakot Airport celebrates five years of operation.
In 2008 Heliflite opened its Western Australian centre at Perth’s Jandakot Airport. Manager Tony Bates leads the experienced Heliflite WA team. Heliflite has long been involved in the Western Australian helicopter industry going back to the late 1970s with a charter organisation once based in Kununurra. In the early 1980s Heliflite introduced the Robinson R22 helicopter to Western Australia, while a decade later Heliflite brought the first R44 to the region. In late 2011 Heliflite delivered the first R66 Turbine to Western Australia.
Heliflite has been the longest serving Robinson helicopter distributor since 1977 with sales and support bases also in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Auckland.
