About Us

Steph and Ben SmartSmart Air Services was established in 1999 by Brad Jones and traded as Cropcair.

In 2003 Ben Smart joined the business as Chief Pilot and after 9 years he and his wife Steph were given the opportunity to purchase the Cropcair in 2012 and the business name was changed to Smart Air Services.

Based at Cecil Plains in SE QLD, we service the Darling Downs and surrounding areas. In 2014 Smart Air expanded the business by acquiring Rural Aviation at Oakey owned by Roy Dawson who continues to fly with us in the Summer Season.

Smart Air Services prides itself on being an industry leader and as a member of the Aerial Agricultural Association of Australia (AAAA’s) we are dedicated to safety and continuous improvement.

As part of our commitment to this we:

  • Are fully accredited and independently audited to comply with AAAA’s Aerial Improvement Management System (AIMS) – a industry specific business management system that delivers against risk management, safety management and quality assurance.
  • Our pilots and ground staff are Operation Spray Safe Accredited which ensures professional and safe application of approved agricultural chemicals by air.
  • Are subjected to spontaneous Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) audits to ensure we comply with government and industry regulations.
