Since 1974, Chartair has been flying to the most remote and isolated parts of our country. Over our 46 year history, we have flown through times of flood, fire, and drought to ensure vital lifelines remain in place.

Today, we confront some of the greatest challenges facing our society; but Chartair will keep flying. We will ensure the services  essential for life in remote communities continue – health workers, emergency repairs, water sampling, and essential resupply.

To our friends in the aviation industry, we feel your pain and wish everyone the very best in this horrible time. With the collective spirit of all aviators, we will get through this and regroup to rebuild a stronger industry on the other side.
