Mr Leach said by situating HeliSmart at Cecil Plains near Dalby it will save regional clients time and money.

“We also provide remote base servicing and field repairs and can get to a break down quickly with access to a fixed wing aeroplane.”
Mr Leach possesses extensive industry experience having trained at the Robinson main base in California and more than 12 years’ working with Cloncurry Mustering Company, Aeropower Redcliffe and Heli-Muster at Victoria River Downs Station in the Northern Territory.
“With my background in the helicopter mustering industry, Robinson helicopters, and having worked as chief engineer on a station, I know how important ti is to limit down time while ensuring your maintenance is carried out to the highest safety standards.”
