Our History

Welcome to Machjet International – the Premium Air Charter, Cargo and Medevac specialists that deliver the highest safety, reliability and most flexible private jet hire service across Australia, Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific.

At Machjet International, our philosophy is simple – to provide our customers with outstanding service, unrivalled flexibility and unparalleled safety.

Machjet International evolved in 2006 to support McDermott Aviation’s aerial firefighting fleet across Australia and New Calendonia. This allowed McDermott Aviation the freedom of transporting their crew, parts and equipments on a time schedule that suited them.

Eventually, a need for more flexible, quicker air travel became apparent, and Machjet rose to the challenge and has since become one of the leading fixed wing charter companies in Australia.

The core of McDermott Aviation’s success – “thinking outside the box” and a drive to “get the job done” has flowed seamlessly into the everyday life of Machjet International.

About Us


Safety management includes all areas of safety, security, health and environmental management. It holds the key to this organisation’s future and affects everything we do.

Machjet International has implemented a Safety Management System (SMS) to direct all personnel in the safe delivery of operations. SMS is a proactive, integrated approach to safety management and part of an overall management process that Machjet International has adopted to ensure that it’s operational goals can be achieved safely and effectively. SMS embraces the principle that the identification and management of risk increases the likelihood of accomplishing the mission. Hazards can be identified and dealt with systematically in a format, which facilitates continuous improvement and professionalism. Auditing and monitoring processes ensure that all activities are carried out in such a way as to minimise the risks inherent in-flight operations and support activities.

Management is committed to the SMS and has established leadership for the program and will continue to demonstrate, through everyday actions, the commitment to safety and its priority in the achievements of the organisation.

The processes in place in the SMS include the active involvement of all staff, managers and supervisors, who, through planning and review, will drive efforts for continuing improvement in safety and safety performance.  The key focus is the safe operations of airworthy aircraft.

Safety audits are essential components of the SMS.  These internal and external audits review systems, identify safety issues, prioritize safety issues, involve all personnel and enhance the safety of operations.
