Surf Life Saving WA previously leased a Bell 206B JetRanger from Heliwest (VH-BIN) from late 2008 to early 2011 at a cost of $1200 per hour, and it accrued 300 flying hours in five months. The A119 was ordered as a replacement for the JetRanger, and was originally due to be delivered in November 2011, but delivery was delayed whilst it was modified and repainted in Auckland, New Zealand by Heliflite Pacific. It was fitted with floats, a rescue winch, and first-aid equipment. The A119 was purchased, rather than leased. It does not cost much more to operate than the earlier JetRanger, but provides the SLSWA with more operational flexibility. It was named “John Roberts AO” at a ceremony at Fremantle Heliport on 21 December 2011 attended by WA Premier Colin Barnett and millionaire Tim Roberts, Principal of AVWest. The A119 was named after Tim Roberts’ late father, John Roberts. John Roberts founded the major construction company Multiplex, and was a strong supporter of Surf Life Saving, and was a patron for the North Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club.

VH-FNA Fokker 50 (cn 20106) of Skywest (all white, Skywest rudder, no titles) at Perth Airport – Mon 18 March 2013
This aircraft was flown from Perth via Alice Springs to Townsville on 25 February 2013 and repainted white. It returned to Perth on 11 March 2013, and has re-entered service.Virgin Australia is currently awaiting regulatory approvals before taking over Skywest, and as part of this, the Skywest branding will disappear altogether.Apart from the Virgin Australia-branded ATR72s which Skywest already operate, this is the first Skywest aircraft to lose its colours. Once regulatory approvals are received, it will have Virgin Australia titles applied.
On final approach to runway 21 at 12:18 on arrival from Onslow.

This aircraft was towed from Terminal 2, where it had been parked for more than a year, to Bay 502, near Bungana Avenue in the General Aviation area. This was only temporary, for the nose cone to be removed, and it was later towed back near Terminal 2.

In 2008, Ozjet Airlines was purchased by Heavy Lift Cargo Airlines Pty Ltd, but continued to operate.On 20 May 2009, Ozjet Airlines ceased operations and
VH-OZX was stored at Perth (parked on the Terminal WA apron), and has never flown since.It was registered N737HL in July 2009 and put up for sale. It is no longer considered airworthy and its US registration expired on 30 September 2011.
This morning, N737HL (together with N733HL) made its first move in three and a half years. As Terminal 2 commenced operations today, the parking space occupied by the OzJet 737s was now needed by operational aircraft. So shortly after this photo, N737HL was towed away from Terminal 2 to the end of Taxiway R.
