Niugini Heliworks continues to be a strong competitor in the helicopter charter service industry in Papua New Guinea. Our success is much accredited to our ability to offer solutions that are conducive to the environment in which we operate and having SAFETY has our priority. Our twin-engine helicopters are regularly services and maintained to ensure they are operating to the highest of safety and aviation industry standards. 

Over the years we had plans to be strategically located in areas where we could be a maximum of 500km or 2hrs flying time to any of our job sites. This was realised in January, 2016 when we opened up an operating base in Kundiawa, Chimbu Province.

Whilst our contribution to Papua New Guinea have been numerous, we are excited about being the first helicopter charter company to partner with provincial governments to provide much needed MEDEVAC services to remote areas. This program has put us in the forefront of MEDEVAC projects and continues to define how we run our business.

People FIRST! 



SAFETY is one of our core business functions. We are committed to developing, implementing,
maintaining and constantly improving strategies and processes to ensure that all our aviation activities
take place under a balanced allocation of organizational resources, aimed at achieving the highest
level of safety performance and meeting national and international standards, while delivering our services.
All levels of management and all employees are accountable for the delivery of this highest level of safety
performance, starting with the Chief Executive Officer.
Our commitment is to:
 Support the management of safety through the provision of all appropriate resources, that will result in
an organizational culture that fosters safe practices, encourages effective safety reporting and
communication, and actively manages safety with the same attention to results as the attention to the
results of the other management systems of the organization;
 Enforce the management of safety as a primary responsibility of all managers and employees; Clearly
define for all staff, managers and employees alike, their accountabilities and responsibilities
for the delivery of the organization's safety performance and the performance of our safety
management system;
 Establish and operate hazard identification and risk management processes, including a hazard
reporting system, in order to eliminate or mitigate the safety risks of the consequences of hazards
resulting from our operations or activities to a point which is as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP);
 Ensure that no action will be taken against any employee who discloses a safety concern through
the hazard reporting system, unless such disclosure indicates, beyond any reasonable doubt, an
illegal act, gross negligence, or a deliberate or wilful disregard of regulations or procedures;
 Comply with and, wherever possible, exceed, legislative and regulatory requirements and
 Ensure that sufficient skilled and trained human resources are available to implement safety
strategies and processes;
 Ensure that all staff are provided with adequate and appropriate aviation safety information and
training, are competent in safety matters, and are allocated only tasks commensurate with their skills;
 Establish and measure our safety performance against realistic safety performance indicators and
safety performance targets;
 Continually improve our safety performance through management processes that ensure that
relevant safety action is taken and is effective; and
 Ensure externally supplied systems and services to support our operations are delivered meeting our
safety performance standards.
