Coolibah Air, proudly operated by North Australian Helicopters, is solely owned by Milton Jones, a hardworking Northern Territorian, with mustering in his blood who bought a cattle station, Coolibah in 1988. Coolibah Air was named after the huge cattle station in the Northern Territory, which is, home to ‘The Joneses’ a family who have become recent television stars after a reality documentary based on their life on the station aired on national television in 2010.
