Air Work

Bungie Helicopters specialise in commercial Air Work including aerial surveying, aerial spotting, power line inspection, underground utilities inspection, stock and feral animal control, sling load operations, incendiary dropping, aerial photography and aerial stock mustering. Our helicopters operate in Far North Queensland and Cape York areas.

Our level of safety and experience is unsurpassed in Far North Queensland as our three pilots have over 40 years combined experience specialising in low level flying and sling work in difficult and challenging conditions.


Advantages cited by repeat clientèle who support and use of our services are:

  • Friendly and helpful pilots who are willing to assist with field work when needed reducing time and costs.
  • Bases in Mossman/Cooktown/Coen and Punsand Bay significantly reduce costs associated with ferry to and from job locations.
  • Reputable skills with safe manoeuvrability in confined spaces, high altitude landings and safe navigation of difficult terrain.
  • Customer confidence in flying with an experienced and safe operator with a high level of knowledge of aircraft limitations.

As an environmentally aware business, we are proud to own and operate the Robinson R44 Clipper II Helicopters. The R44 has a significantly lower fuel consumption and ‘noise footprint’ than turbine helicopters, making them more practical and efficient for operating in environmentally sensitive heritage areas and urban locations.
The use of helicopters in remote areas also reduces the damage to environmentally sensitive and inaccessible areas that vehicle access causes.
