Tender 310224 Supply of Type 3 Helicopter Services


The Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) is a Victorian State Government Department vested with the protection of most areas of public land in the State of Victoria, Australia from damage by bushfire.  The Country Fire Authority (CFA) is responsible for the protection from fire of most areas of private land in rural Victoria.

The State has a requirement for organisations to provide the services of a number of suitably equipped and crewed helicopters to support fire suppression and other natural resource management operations.

The services are required during the summer fire season, approximately November to April for three years.  There will be some ad hoc requirements outside this period. The services will be required to operate in all areas of Victoria, and occasionally in other Australian states and territories.

Modern and well maintained aircraft are sought that are crewed, supported and managed by highly professional, skilled and motivated organisations. Aircraft being offered should be turbine powered.

The services will be managed by the State Aircraft Unit on behalf of DSE and CFA.
