CareFlight, headquartered in Sydney, NSW, uses helicopters, turboprops and business jets to transfer patients from accident scenes and between hospitals.

Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, Vector will provide comprehensive engine MRO services from its P&WC PT6A Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) in Brisbane, QLD, in support of CareFlight’s six King Air B200 aircraft, which are powered by the PT6A-42. These aircraft are customised in aeromedical configuration and operated as the ‘Top End Medical Retrieval Service’ on behalf of the Northern Territory Government, based out of Darwin, NT.

“We welcome the opportunity to continue our valued relationship with Vector,” said Derek Colenbrander, CEO of CareFlight. "We are extremely confident that Vector will provide the engine support and service we need to ensure that we enhance our level of customer service and improve our competiveness.”

Matt Dennington, General Manager of Vector’s Brisbane facility, said that Vector is excited to be entering into the service agreement with CareFlight: “We are confident that Vector’s repair and overhaul practices, coupled with our team of highly trained and professional people, will be of exceptional value and benefit to CareFlight.”
