Many thanks to Jeremy Frost of Prime7 News (Wagga Wagga) for the opportunity to discuss the Government aviation industry support package, announced by Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack.

“Whilst I commend the Government for extending some $1billion in assistance to Qantas, Virgin and Regional Express, the vast majority of Australia’s general aviation industry is being devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Australia’s aviation industry comprises of much more than just our international, domestic and regional airlines, all of which need a healthy general aviation industry to function.

“General aviation charter, flight training, maintenance and the broader aviation supply chain are all at risk as the pandemic continues.

“Australia’s general aviation sectors require urgent clear advice from Government, detailing what assistance is available to them and how they apply. This information is needed urgently.”
