About

Welcome to KAS Helicopters, the West Kimberley's scenic, charter and airwork specialist.

Our mission is to give visitors the experience of a lifetime, showcasing the best the Kimberley has to offer from a unique aerial perspective, with highly skilled, experienced local pilots backed by a modern fleet.

Founded in 2007 with one helicopter used primarily for helifishing adventures around Derby, co-owners Adrian Crook and Dave Preedy seized commercial opportunities, growing the company to today’s multi base and multi aircraft operation.
