Our Large Air Tanker crews were grateful to be able to take some down time yesterday as part of a welfare rest, and to process the Tanker 139 accident. This was put in place as part of our internal processes. The crews are now keen to get back to their role of protecting Australians from bushfires.

Coulson Aviation’s Large Air Tanker operations resumed early today. Coulson Aviation is working collaboratively with the ATSB and CASA as the investigation progresses.

We would like to acknowledge all those who have shown our team such great support over the last couple of days. Thank you to the Australian firefighting agencies, our industry colleagues and the community for your support.
