About Us

Superair Australia was established in 1964 by a group of graziers located in the Armidale area for the aerial application of superphosphate throughout the New England. The company began operating with one Ceres aircraft and since that time has built the fleet up to the current level of ten operational aircraft.

 

In 1971 it was determined that the business was expanding to such a level a hangar needed to be erected for the maintenance of Superair's fleet. As the number of aircraft increased and an expanding number of outside maintenance customers prompted the company in 1985 to build a larger hangar of 2000 sq meters floor space. Superair currently maintains aircraft from NSW, QLD & Victoria.

 

The company is based on the northern tablelands of New South Wales. Its main office is located at Armidale airport and also has bases in Glen Innes and Scone. Topdressing operations stretch from the Queensland border, south to the Hunter, east to the Central Coast and to Narrabri in the West. This is an area in excess of 100,000 square kilometres. Special Contract requirements have had operations in all states of Australia and overseas

 

The areas that Superair operates in are some of the most productive in the area of fine wool, fat lambs and cattle grazing. Superair is an important part in maintaining this efficient production as the producers need annual applications of phosphate and other minerals to be accurately applied to the land thereby enhancing production and returns to the farmers.

 

Over the last 50 years Superair has applied over an estimated 1,850,000 tonnes of fertiliser and also carried out seeding, spraying and other aerial work.

 

Superair's fleet consists of 4 X  750 hp turbine Cresco's, 4 X 400 hp Fletcher FU24's, and 2 X 600hp turbine Stallion aircraft. These aircraft are built for the aerial topdressing industry. The Cresco aircraft are the best aircraft specifically designed for our operations.
