Charter flights, safety focus and quality service have secured a major win for Scone airline Airspeed Aviation.

The VIP Flight operator was awarded “Small Business Excellence” at the NSW Minerals Council Industry & Supplier awards against a challenging field.

The award was presented by NSW Deputy Premier Troy Grant and accepted by Chief Pilot and Managing Director Ben Wyndham in a room packed with Industry figures and parliamentarians, both State and Federal.

Mr Wyndham thanked the NSW Minerals Council, BHP Billiton’s Mount Arthur North project and Airspeed Aviation’s clients in accepting the award, stating that dedicated and professional staff and strong community engagement underpinned the business’s success to date.
