Airspace Fuel


This is a unique position with Airspace Fuel | Remote Aviation Fuel as a helicopter driver/ refueller during the bushfire season in WA, NSW and ACT.


Drivers/ Refueller’s are essentially part of a fire fighting crew so you are on call much of the time. The position is essentially a stand-by job, so you don’t actually work unless you are needed.


Start Date: October 2021 to early April 2022 

Locations: Sydney, Perth and Canberra | 3 positions to be filled.

Remuneration: Up to $400/day


NOTE: Airspace Fuel is waiting on government requirements (to cross borders) but candidates may have to be fully vaccinated.

Job Description: Candidates will be required to drive to locations to fuel rotary wing aircraft for work fighting bushfires. You will be required to be on stand-by for 100 days starting about late October 2021 to early April 2022 (much of that time is 'on call' - see below). 

Drivers MUST have:

  • HC Semi Licence

  • Dangerous Good’s Licence

  • 18 Speed RoadRanger Experience 

  • Comfortable driving a semi in traffic (This is highly unlikely to happen but better to have the skill)

  • This is a customer service role, candidates MUST BE HAPPY AND APPROACHABLE!



  • Share (crew) house supplied 

  • Company car (if you would like to use your own car fuel will be supplied)

  • All work related expenses reimbursed (flights, training, travel, PPE) 

  • Contract is for 100 days straight however time off can be arranged with notice. 100 days seems like a long time without time off but candidates must remember that 80% of days are spent on “stand-by”, watching TV/movies etc.

All other training will be on the job.


For the right candidate there is a full time role, on call with a guaranteed 12 weeks holiday, available for $60,000 per year.  

To apply for this role applicants MUST present with a current resume and at least two contactable work related references. Applicants applying without this information and required experience will not be considered.
