Helitak

Helitak is making Queensland safer with innovative aerial firefighting equipment

These Noosa-based designers and manufacturers are creating the next generation of fire suppression systems for helicopters.

Helitak’s cutting-edge firefighting system – an innovative bladder that attaches to a helicopter, expanding when filled and retracting when empty – is protecting bushland, properties and people here and all around the globe.

In Queensland, we know how devastating and destructive bushfires can be. That’s why the Queensland Government supported Helitak with $100,000 from round 5 of the Ignite Ideas fund last year. The grant has helped Helitak gain a new international certification, scale up production and create more jobs.

By supporting Helitak, we’re helping drive innovation that protects communities from bushfires, all while creating more jobs for the future.

Support our great Queensland businesses. #MakeitGreatQLD
