QGAir – Hawker 850 & King Air 350 pilot
Queensland Government Air (QGAir) is the Queensland Government’s airwing, delivering life-saving, community safety and state support aviation services to the people and government of Queensland. QGAir was formed as result of combining the former Emergency Management Queensland Helicopter Rescue, Government Air Wing and Police Air Wing into a unified government flying service.
The QGAir fleet consists of seven fixed wing aircraft and five helicopters. The fixed wing fleet consists of a Beechcraft Hawker 850, a Beechcraft King Air 350, a Cessna Citation 560, a Beechcraft 1900 and Cessna Caravan 208’s
QGAir bases are at Brisbane, Archerfield, Townsville, Cairns, Mt Isa and Horn Island.
The fixed wing fleet operates flights providing dignitary transport; correctional, police and government support; emergency, disaster and incident response; and a range of support flights for the Queensland government.
QGAir is a great employment option for pilots seeking a rewarding, interesting and varied career. The style of flying is a combination of corporate services, community support and incident response. This is a unique opportunity to secure stable employment in a stimulating work environment where no two days are ever the same.
