Airspeed Aviation is a mining-industry focussed air charter provider based in the Hunter Valley. It was founded by a former underground coal miner, Ben Wyndham.
With the support of the mining industry, Airspeed Aviation was named its preferred supplier for Airline operations into Narrabri and won the Small Business Achievement Award at the 2016 Industry and Suppliers Awards Dinner (I&S).
We asked Ben what it meant to win this award.
“It has given us exposure in front of mining’s best suppliers and the major sponsor of our category is also the largest mining employer in our district, so it helps us gain visibility in front of that business.
“I would recommend the I&S Awards to any established mining business. It’s an opportunity to benchmark yourself against your peers. Furthermore, the process of working through the nomination in itself is beneficial as it makes you think about your business and how others perceive it from the outside.”
Three words that Ben said best described the I&S Awards Dinner were “Prestige, Exposure and Honoured.”
