Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue Agusta AW139 Helicopter VH-EZJ Passes Through Emerald Airport Heading South

On Friday 10 December, Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue (State of Queensland) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-ESH was noted passing through Emerald Airport Airport while ferrying South from Cairns and Townsville to Archerfield.

VH-EZJ has operating out of Cairns Airport in recent months and so it is presumed that it has ferried from Cairns and Townsville to Archerfield for planned maintenance.

As we have reported previously, this 'rotational system' of airframes that QGAir utilises ensure the even distribution of flying hours on each of the their Rescue helicopters. This system avoids the need to have multiple helicopters offline for simultaneous scheduled maintenance.
