Helicopters Australia run this set of Helitacks in both Qld and WA, with the Qld fire season running earlier. The Helicopters run with the same callsigns in both states, and have a few decals changed between Qld Fire & Rescue for Qld operations, and Dept Fire & Emergency Services and Fire & Rescue WA for their season.

In WA, they run from Helicopters Australia’s Perth Airport facility.
