As of today Heli-Hire Ltd as been signed off by CAA as an independant Part 137 operation. This means we are now able to continue to spread fertiliser on your paddocks, and spray those weeds, gorse and scrub that we have done previously under our old parent company Central Helicopters. Nothing has changed internally only the company name.
