Solutions

Program Management

Program Management

At StarFlight Australia we understand that proactive Program Management can make all the difference in delivering complex solutions that address challenging capability requirements. Our Program Managers are authorised to act in the best interests of the capability, putting the client’s interests ahead of any other.

They are also held accountable through regular program updates and review gates, visible to all involved parties, and operate within a ‘no surprises’ culture – potential issues are flagged early and mitigated before they become issues. This approach lives on throughout the entirety of the contract.

Working with our Technology Partners and OEMs, StarFlight Australia is uniquely positioned to support high-end, Nationally-visible State and Federal Emergency Services contracts. As your trusted partner, we are solutions-oriented and easy to work with, providing demonstrable Value for Money. We are guided by a values based relationship management philosophy – a partner that you can trust to uphold the highest traditions of your Force.

Integrated logistics support

Leveraging Linfox integrated logistics support, comprehensive turn-key solutions for logistics services including passenger and freight transport.

“When the State of Victoria went to market for new Police Air-Wing capability, the StarFlight approach set them apart from the competition. Importantly, it was clear to me that they were absolutely committed to putting forward the best available solutions that would give the customer exactly what they wanted. The program as delivered included a range of significant and complex modifications that were essential to the capability but were not available from factory. 

We were able to work with StarFlight in a highly collaborative way that could leverage each organisations’ unique strengths, delivering project outcomes that have now redefined what is possible in the aerial policing and tactical mission space. We are certainly proud to have worked together with Starflight to deliver on this important, world class capability to the State of Victoria.”
