  • Yes. Fish and Bird counts. Usually with Dept of Ag experts on board with cameras and notebooks (the paper kind). One aircraft was lost doing this.

    • It's a shame that they didnt sell off the Cessnas and just keep one. They are making good money and these were maintained like cut glass.

      • A picture of the former Air Corps Puma helicopter taken in 2020 after it received a fresh coat of paint.
        It was still being used as a military test aircraft and I believe it was retired from service in September.

        • Sponsons appear bigger when they paint them bright orange. Looks so different without the weather radar. If we had kept it in 82, it would be paid for by now...
          For now, everything hangs on the CoDF report, still possibly 2 weeks from the Ministers desk.

          • We would have paid for it in a few years and it would have served us so well. Like the dropping of the King Airs,a very bad decision for small money.

            • I feel that the Kingairs had to go purely to justify the Casas. While the Kingair continued to fly you would always have some beancounter in Newbridge asking "why do you need the Casa for MPA when the old MPA are still working?"

                Final King Air was used for MATS, air ambulance and multi engine training

                CASA MARPATs came into service in 1994, the last SKA wasn’t retired until 2009

                  Don't think that one (240?) ever did Maritime patrol, and it arrived 3 years after the other 2.
