Aircraft Maintenance
Jones Air's maintenance facility is considered to be one of the best in western Queensland and provides aircraft maintenance services to clients in rural Queensland and NSW. We are licensed to provide comprehensive maintenance to piston engine, turbine engine and rotary wing aircraft, including airframe welding.


Our experienced engineering staff can handle aircraft from small piston engined planes up to the larger turbine aircraft. Here our staff can be seen working on one of Jones Air's AT-802's.

Chief Engineer Rick Ellis is a licensed aircraft maintenance engineer with many years experience in aircraft servicing and workshop management to CASA standards and Aircraft maker specifications under full Quality Certification procedures.

Rick manages our busy staff with administrative assistance from Amy Parke. Engineers include Clynton Chandler, Clint Jackwitz, Damian Hersey and apprentices Joseph Kennedy & Cody Watt.

Jones Air maintain our own fleet of agricultural aircraft as well as those of other operators. Other clients use their aircraft for aerial mustering or simply as a means of transport. We are also an approved Robinson Helicopter Service Centre.

The bulk of the work is undertaken at our workshop in St George, but we also offer onsite maintenance in places as far afield as Boulia, Charleville, Biloela, Thargomindah and down into Northern NSW in areas around Lightning Ridge and Wanaaring.

Licensed pilots on staff enable our team to cover a broad geographical area of Western QLD and Northern NSW, providing an unmatched aircraft maintenance service. Alternatively our engineers can drive by car out to the field for services. Of course, we encourage our clients to consider bringing their helicopter or aeroplane into our well equipped hangars rather than relying on field services. This allows us full access to our well stocked parts store and tooling. There is plenty of accomodation available in St George and we can usually make a vehicle available during your stay.

Queensland Aerospray, an aircraft repainting business run by Don Woodrow, leases a purpose built hangar from Jones Air. Don and his team can strip and repaint your aircraft helping to protect your valuable investment. He has considerable painting experience on both military and civilian aircraft, and can design a new paint scheme or redo the original.

Jones Air recognises the problem of a shortage of aircraft engineers within the industry, especially those familiar with agricultural aircraft. We have an accredited apprenticeship scheme in conjunction with the Department of Employment, Training and Industrial Relations at Roma, QLD, which supplies the company and the industry with an ongoing supply of skilled labour.

We would be pleased to discuss your maintenance requirements with you.
