Coulson Aviation (Australia) Pty Ltd. (the Australian division of Coulson Aviation) is expanding its partnerships in Australia as the business looks to cement its commitment to supporting Australian emergency services in firefighting. This will allow Coulson Aviation Australia to maintain and continue its strong operational presence.

Coulson Aviation Australia has operated in Australia for more than 19 years and is in the process of relocating its headquarters from Melbourne to Sydney, securing a hangar and offices at Bankstown Airport in partnership with Sydney Metro Airports.

Coulson Group CEO, Wayne Coulson said the family company was looking to expand with the new home base, employing locally and partnering with local and Australian-based companies across a range of requirements.

By September 2020, Coulson plans to have over 40 full-time employees based in Bankstown to look after the Australian-based division of the company.

Accommodation suppliers Crowne Plaza Hawkesbury Valley, Hawksbury Race Club Motel and Travelodge Hotel Bankstown will look after the crews and pilots who come in each year to support at risk communities with the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

Coulson Aviation transports teams across the country and across countries to get them positioned for their roles supporting firefighting efforts, we are excited to announce a partnership with QANTAS as our preferred international and domestic airline carrier.

Coulson said the partnerships are important to Coulson Aviation Australia as it settles into Sydney and continues to grow.

“Our aim is to use local suppliers where we can.  We’ve operated in Australia for almost 20 years of our 26 years in aerial fire suppression, and supporting Australia and Australian businesses where we can, is an important commitment for us,” Wayne Coulson said.

Coulson Aviation Pty Ltd. will shortly start recruitment for administration team members, local fixed wing and rotary wing pilots, engineers, and maintenance crews.
