Babcock confirms LAND 2097 Phase 4 bid

Babcock Australasia has officially thrown its hat in the ring for the LAND 2097 Phase 4 Project, supporting the Australian Defence Force’s Special Operations Helicopter capability.

Under LAND 2097 Phase 4, the ADF is acquiring 16 helicopters for Holsworthy, including the proposed provision, training and ongoing sustainment services of the fleet.


“Babcock is the largest commercial procurer of helicopters in the world and we are the largest commercial operator of helicopters in Australia,” said David Ruff, CEO Babcock Australasia.

“We understand what it takes to deliver mission-critical services to high-tempo operational customers who demand consistency, high-performance and exceptional safety.

Our established nation-wide presence, backed-up by an extensive global supply network, integrated into an experienced defence industry capability both in Australia and overseas, means that Babcock already has the ethos, the infrastructure and the people in place to provide a unique offering to Defence as an independent capability partner.”

Babcock is the largest commercial operator of helicopters in Australia, owning and operating aircraft from the three largest original equipment manufacturers in the delivery of its mission critical service offerings, across numerous civil and defence programs.



“Our independence is the cornerstone of trust and is fundamental to our value proposition. We focus on our customers’ needs with the flexibility to design, integrate and deliver tailored services,” said Babcock’s Graeme Nayler, director of corporate development.

“Babcock will be putting forward an innovative solution that supports the ADF during both the acquisition and sustainment phases.

“Babcock offers global experience in tactical police surveillance and border protection campaigns. With no biases on particular platforms, we are an independent support partner with access to highly trained professionals, infrastructure and the capability to supply and sustain complex projects such as this."
