our story

Pilot Manager

With a combined flight time experience of 100,000+ flight hours, you can be sure that you’re working with a very experienced and knowledgeable team.



Rotor Work Limited prides itself on being an independent company which partners with a number of other companies to provide services, goods and equipment.



Our helicopters are ideal for spraying large blocks to individual paddocks, or - due to their slower spraying speed and maneuverability - small blocks of brush weeds.
