Law enforcement and Defence
StarFlight is helping to transform how our police force and Defence services acquire and sustain the next generation of aviation capability. Our focus on foundation mission systems architecture, modular design and integrated Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR) suites enables an optimised user-centric experience on the frontline.
Our 10-year contract to provide advanced aviation services to the State of Victoria and Victoria Police is helping increase police capability in emergency management, search and rescue, extended offshore marine safety and law enforcement, public safety and operational policing duties. This new capability is regarded in the industry as one of the best multi-role policing helicopter operations in the world.
StarFlight Australia is a proud member of the Australian Industry and Defence Network (AIDN).
Emergency response, including aeromedical retrieval and search and rescue
Working with our Technology Partners and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), StarFlight Australia is uniquely positioned to support high-end, nationally visible state and federal emergency services contracts.
LifeFlight (StarFlight's partner) conduct, on average, more than 2,500 aeromedical retrievals a year utilising our fixed and rotary wing fleet. Our fleet of rotary and fixed wing aircraft have been purposely configured for aeromedical and Search and Rescue (SAR) activities where the latest aircraft capability and integrated medical care can demonstrably improve outcomes for ill and injured patients. Integrated training sees flight and medical crews training together to ensure the highest standards of critical medical care is provided to seriously ill and injured people 24/7, 365 days per year.
Bolstering the services, StarFlight’s operational hub, the LifeFlight Communications, Coordination and Control Centre (C3), is responsible for coordinating complex operations across Australia and around the world. C3 is staffed around the clock by a team of experienced aviation operation coordinators who specialise in retrieval medicine, emergency response, medical management, and aviation disciplines.
