Helico Australia has operated since 2015 and was created out of a love for rebuilding Robinson helicopters. We specialise in rebuilds and refurbishments, line maintenance, pre-purchase inspections and sales.
Choosing which type of aircraft to specialise in was easy for Helico’s director Hylke after he spent many years travelling Australia servicing and rebuilding Robinson Helicopters. Hylke quickly developed a soft spot for these versatile and affordable machines which are used widely in Australia for flight training, tours & sightseeing, aerial stock mustering and spraying. There are more Robinson aircraft in the country than any other.
At Helico Australia, we believe that the 2200hr inspection or rebuild is the perfect opportunity to make your aircraft look and run like new again. We have a real passion for pulling apart a tired helicopter and making it immaculate! Our engineers strive to achieve and maintain a very high quality of work in an efficient time frame. We are proud to have honest, genuine dealings with people and aim to be the best at what we do.
Hylke has been a Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer since 2004. He started with a mobile helicopter maintenance company that travelled around southern Australia servicing aircraft. He has also spent time with Heli-Muster at Victoria River Downs station, Helicopter Resources in Tasmania and even had a posting in the Antarctic.
Hylke’s career has seen him complete over 50 quality rebuilds throughout Australia.
Helico’s main base was set up on the outskirts of Alexandra but expanded quickly with the development of a sister base in Fitzroy Crossing, WA. Helico now also has remote bases in Kilcoy QLD, Darwin NT and Broome WA. Across the five sites there are 24 employees who are proud to share and promote Helico’s vision and values.
