What Are The Advantages Of Aerial Surveys And Spotting?

Save Time

Aerial surveys are the quickest way to get a complete aerial view of a large expanse of land in a very short amount of time.


No Interruption

Aerial survey companies offer a cost-effective solution to gathering information and data without disrupting or delaying any ground work.

Highly Accurate

Aerial surveys enable you to gather reliable and accurate information by utilising lightweight aircraft flying at low level so you can get all of the details you need for a thorough assessment.

Aerial Surveys

Our aerial surveys allow you to quickly assess large blocks of rural land to record detailed and accurate data for your needs in a short amount of time. Whether you need to explore a new hectare farm pre-purchase or survey an existing property, we can provide you with aerial solutions that are fast and convenient.

Aerial surveys can be used for many reasons, including:


Identifying what percentage of land might have difficult-to-control noxious weeds, such as Parthenium and giant rat’s tail grass


Determining if land needs to be seeded


Geo-environmental sampling

Aerial Spotting

Our C-208 aircraft provides a reliable, stable platform for air attack, piloted by experienced bomber pilots from AIR CQ. We have the capability to quickly move nine officers and their gear to the next area to be worked which significantly cuts down on the logistics of each trip.

Aerial spotting is used for a wide range of causes, such as:


Observing damage caused by natural disasters, including floods and fires


Helping farmers recover missing livestock


Locating fauna


Monitoring wildlife numbers, including counting turtles and dugong numbers and identifying tracking patterns

Our aerial spotting services are used by media and parks services, as well as landowners, as an important resource in emergency situations.
