The Pretoria High Court has set side a four-year tender that was awarded to Ultimate Heli after it was discovered that Indwe Aviation was unfairly excluded from the bidding process. The tender was for helicopter support to the Environmental Affairs Department’s yearly research and resupply expeditions to Antarctica. Ultimate Heli has already spent two years, R10 million on helicopters and hired 12 permanent staff on the service. They will continue to provide their services until a new tender is awarded, reports Citizen.
