This week we take a look at Aero Logistics Helicopters. Aviation Photographer Jayden has supplied the images and content. His details can be found below.
Aero Logistics Helicopters was started in 1999 by a local Newcastle man. By 2004, Aero Logistics Helicopters had grown to operate 2 bases, one at Cessnock Airport & the other at Carrington, in the Newcastle Harbour. They have also built & opened a brand new heliport by the Mayfield Steel River. This was & still is known as the Newcastle Regional Heliport (YNRH).
By 2007, Aero Logistics Helicopters had started to operate a terminal at the Sydney International Airport Heliport. This was used for charters to & from the Hunter Valley’s wine region as well as corporate charters into the Newcastle CBD.
