Jandakot based aviation business Helicopter Logistics has signed a teaming agreement with Airbus Australia Pacific.
Matt Corbett, Managing Director of Helicopter Logistics said, “We are very pleased to be partnering with Airbus on the Team Nightjar bid under the Land 2097 tender. This tender is for a fleet of H145M helicopters for the Australian Defence Force’s Special Forces. We have no doubt that the H145M, through its proven capability globally, will provide the ADF with the most formidable aircraft to carry out this important role”.

Andrew Mathewson, Managing Director of Airbus Australia Pacific, said: “We are delighted to have Helicopter Logistics onboard Team Nightjar as we focus on offering a robust Australian industrial support for the Australian Defence Force. With Helicopter Logistics’ established footprint in Western Australia, we are confident of continuing our strong support to Defence’s operations”.
Matt Corbett stated “Helicopter Logistics is the only Western Australian company involved in the bid. The partnership with Airbus Australia Pacific provides the opportunity to add helicopter support capability to the growing defence requirements in Western Australia and if successful, will provide employment opportunities for the State”.
Committed to Veterans
Helicopter Logistics is a veteran owned Western Australian company with veterans employed in key management positions.
Matt Corbett said, “In recent years there has been a much greater emphasis in the industry on employing veteran Defence personnel. My own Defence experience has proven so valuable in the way we innovate in aviation and ensure a clear, very well structured and managed business. Our Business Development Manager Lindsay Hawke is a veteran and is heavily involved in all aspects of this agreement. We are committed to offering greater employment opportunities for veterans across all aspects of our organisation.”
