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. .

Australian Owned and Operated Response Company

CROSS Aviation, a division of CROSS Asia Pacific Pty Ltd, is in the regulatory process to  introduce Type 2 Fixed Wing air tankers into the national arsenal of aerial fire suppression assets.

  • In the passenger configuration, the aero plane can carry 64 passengers.
