"We look for good people who are capable and passionate about what they do, and by creating StarFlight we have brought some of the best people in the aviation and logistics industries together. I’m proud of what we have achieved and I’m looking forward to seeing StarFlight continue growing as one of the most capable aviation services providers in Australia."

Lindsay Fox AC - Linfox Founder and Executive Chairman

"StarFlight was initially created to provide high-end aviation capability for Government and Defence Services customers, and we saw it as an opportunity to establish a true, niche sovereign capability in the Australian rotary and fixed wing sector. The capability delivered to Victoria Police Air Wing is world class and we’re looking forward to expanding this capability across other industry sectors in the coming years."
