Cairns helicopter company Nautilus Aviation is set to expand with a new base being set up at the regional mining town of Mount Isa, according to the Cairns Post.
The company will base a JetRanger there by the end of this month, and plan on giving focus to scenic flights and heli-camping. CEO Aaron Finn is quoted as saying Mount Isa is strategically placed to allow Nautilus to cover parts of the Northern Territory as well as northwest Queensland.
Various other opportunities could also be capitalised on by having an office at Mount Isa, and the company also operates Airbus H125 and H130 helicopters as well as Bell 407. Nautilus flies the largest fleet in North Queensland with 24 aircraft from bases in Townsville, Cairns, Weipa and Horn Island.
