Aerial Support in times of need
Natural disasters have become a predictable annual event in Australia. The effects of changing climate conditions and the cyclical Southern Oscillation weather pattern present significant challenges in coordination, preparedness, response, and recovery from disasters. This impacts the ability to protect environmental and infrastructure assets.
State and Territory governments manage the emergency responses and recovery in their jurisdictions with support and coordination from the Australian Federal Government in disaster and emergency situations.
The 2019-2020 summer period highlighted the environmental issues Australia faces. This resulted in a Royal Commission to investigate how, as a nation, we can better coordinate, prepare, respond and recover to such events. .

Sovereign Approach in Response and Recovery with a Difference
CROSS Asia Pacific Pty Ltd believes that we need an Australian owned fleet to be available year-round, Nationwide, to assist States and Territory Governments to respond to and aid in the recovery from disasters. We are working on proposals with Type 1 Helicopters for a National Sovereign Fleet to be based regionally for faster response to event situations.
These Type 2 Fixed Wing and Type 1 Helicopters provide a significantly higher capability and enhancements more suited to Australian infrastructure and believes that these Type 2 Fixed Wing and Type 1 Helicopters provide the ideal utility solution for national disaster relief on a year-round basis fulfilling multiple roles.
