Avlaw Aviation Consulting Awarded Contract to Audit Firefighting Aircraft

 Avlaw Aviation Consulting has been selected by the Victorian Government and the National Aerial Firefighting Centre (NAFC) to conduct audits of firefighting aircraft.

The contract involves audits of aircraft engaged in bushfire suppression and prevention activities. After Sydney’s hottest day on record, and with recent bushfires in Victoria, this is proving to be a highly important matter. Victoria has seen some of the worst bush fires in the country. We are proud to be involved in this initiative ensuring aircraft suppressing fires are safely designed and constructed.

The Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is Victoria’s government department responsible for protecting the environment. NAFC is a co-operative arrangement between the different States and territories for fighting bushfires. Both organisations have a key role to play ensuring firefighting aircraft are ready for a fire-related emergency.

The aircraft operators also support a number of other initiatives. This includes land management, flood assessment and control, passenger transport and aerial information gathering. Our airspace consultants will work not only in Victoria but throughout New South Wales and Queensland.

We will additionally inspect aircraft and company operations against contractual requirements. This will involve a range of activities such as fitting out the aircraft, ensuring flight crew qualifications are at the correct standard and ensure maintenance is at the right level.

This is the second consecutive year that Avlaw Aviation Consulting has obtained this contract. Last year, we were able to have the project completed effectively with our highly-qualified and experienced airspace experts performing exceptional auditing work. We conducted nineteen audits before the peak fire season in January.
