General Aviation Maintenance (GAM) is an Essendon Airport, Victoria based operation comprising of GAMair, General Aviation Maintenance (GAM), DC3 Australia, Commander Air and Reefwatch Air Tours however has a small dedicated fleet of Aero Commander
500-S and a single Fairchild Dornier 228-200 aircraft and crew based at Brisbane Airport to service a wide range of charter and freight contracts in Queensland, particuarly the South-Western, Central and Fraser Coast part of the state.
Some of the more notable freight runs currently awarded to GAM that operate each weekday by Aero Commander 500-S aircraft consist of the following :
* Brisbane - Maryborough - Bundaberg - Gayndah and return via the same
stops in reverse.
An aircraft generally departs Brisbane during the earlier hours of the morning and remains parked at Gayndah until late afternoon.
* Brisbane - Dalby - Roma
- Charleville and return via the same towns but includes a stop at Toowoomba.
Again, an Aero Commander makes an early morning departure from Brisbane and remains parked at Charleville until mid-afternoon.
* A more recent freight contract picked up by GAM is the weekday Emerald - Barcaldine - Longreach and return service.
Until recently, Advance Aviation held this contract but when the Emerald based company was placed into administration
in March this year, was awarded to GAM.
A FIFO contract once held with QGC to transport workers between Brisbane and Chinchilla was awarded to Skytrans Airlines in September 2015 and commenced a few weeks later in October. On the
route, GAM operated Fairchild Dornier 228-200 aircraft and were replaced with the venerable de Havilland Dash 8-100 when Skytrans Airlines assumed the reigns.
