Description The AAD has a seasonal requirement for an operator to provide a suitable aircraft and associated services.  The AAD anticipates that its primarily requirement will be for the movement of personnel and priority cargo between Hobart, Australia and Wilkins Aerodrome (located approximately 70km from Casey Station in Antarctica). The AAD's aim in conducting this RFT process is to achieve better value for money than its current arrangement by limiting the provision of the services to a Charter Period (of approximately 3 months per year).
