Welcome to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning online learning website, managed by the Aviation Services Unit

  • The Aviation Services Unit (ASU) manages fire and emergency aviation for Victoria, providing specialist aviation resources for fire, land and emergency management. The ASU conducts aviation training, procures and manages the State Fleet of fire fighting aircraft and maintains aviation policy and procedures on behalf of the fire and emergency agencies. It also prepares and operates specialist equipment and supports Emergency Management Victoria’s 24 hour a day “State Airdesk” services in the State Control Centre.

    Although the primary focus of the ASU is on supporting fire suppression and land management operations, the broader emergency management requirements of partner Agencies, particularly those concerned with community safety, are also serviced. The ASU utilises its expertise and resources to support land management and other operational activities of partner Agencies.

    We strive to conduct our learning and assessment programs using various techniques enabling participants to develop the required knowledge and skills.
