Equipment & Technology

You don’t take to the skies without being backed up by some serious technology.

Even now, we are making plans to introduce over 30 new and significantly upgraded aircraft into our fleet. That’s in addition to the huge $1.6 billion overhaul of our ground level equipment and facilities. It is an incredibly exciting time to get involved as we introduce even more leading-edge technology.

These are just some of the aircraft currently in our fleet

P3-K Orion

Ideal for long-range reconnaissance and surveillance, with the ability to stay airborne for significant periods when on patrol or search and rescue.


We operate a modern fleet of A109 light utility and NH90 medium utility helicoptors as well as maintaining the SH-2G(I) Seasprite Helicopters operated by the Royal New Zealand Navy.

C-130H Hercules

Our 5 Hercules aircraft have recently undergone significant upgrades to the communication and navigation systems including the installation of advanced glass cockpits.

Boeing 757

Recently modified, our B-757s can be quickly adapted for carriage of freight, passengers, and combination of both as well as medical evacuation purposes.

T-6C Texan II

The Texan is a fast and manoeuvrable aircraft used for pilot training and instructor pilot training as well as by the RNZAF acrobatic team, the Black Falcons.

Beech King Air B200

Our four King Airs provide an excellent platform for twin engine training and operational air lift.

Whether you’re flying an aircraft or helping keep them airborne, if you are excited by advanced, complex technology, you will find lots to keep your hands and mind stimulated.
