Commencing operations in 2008, Rotor Solutions is a family business owned and operated by Chief Pilot Hugh Acton-Adams and his wife Monique.
Hugh gained his flying experience spraying forestry and farms throughout Victoria and NSW for many years, and then spent further time in Tasmania gaining diverse experience and knowledge of the aerial agricultural industry before heading to Albury to start Rotor Solutions.
Originally from a farming family in New Zealand, Hugh not only has a great passion for helicopters but a large family history in farming and aviation, including agricultural aviation.
Hugh and Monique are very passionate about providing customers with an excellent job done whilst at the same time ensuring the best service.
Rotor Solutions is always looking for new technologies and ways to make life easier for the customer. The customer is always number one priority.
