Anytime - Anywhere

Global Helicopter Service has a longstanding history of delivering helicopter services in Europe and Africa, providing passenger, freight and advanced Aeromedical services to a number of international clients in a range of countries.

GHS continues to assist the United Nations World Food Program (UNWFP) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) providing carriage for their humanitarian aid services, which started in 2015. Helicopter services to the ICRC have recently expanded to include Burkina Faso with the positioning of a Sikorsky S76 C++ that will operate from Ouagadougou.


GHS is also contracted to provide air transportation services to the United Nations missions located in Western Sahara and South Sudan. Two Bell 412 have been deployed to Western Sahara, based in Smara and Awsard, with a third Bell 412 deployed and based in Abyei, South Sudan. These helicopters are being used to provide services that include logistical re-supply, passenger flights, observation/monitoring, VIP flights, aeromedical / casualty evacuation and all other tasks as may be required.

GHS is well established with a significant presence in West Africa. This has evolved through the expansion of our helicopter fleet and the addition of aeroplane services resulting in a noteworthy increase in the intensity of our daily operations, thereby reinforcing our prominence as a highly respected aviation service provider and reliable partner.


GHS concentrates on the provision of specialist Aeromedical Evacuation Services having provided services to the German DOD operating from Gao in Mali, with present day operations for the European Defence Agency in Niger and the UN WFP in Maiduguri, Nigeria. These all-embracing, advanced medical services are delivered through the deployment of the superior Airbus H225 Super Puma, the robust Bell 412 and the versatile Beechcraft 1900. We offer 24/7 availability which includes on-board intensive care equipment, supported by a wide range of medical patient care equipment and professional in flight care provided by an AE team made up of highly experienced Flight Physician, Nurse or Paramedic.


Additionally, we offer a full Helicopter Management and Maintenance Service package as well as individual services such as aircraft management, maintenance and quality control under EASA regulations. Our team of technicians is trained to OEM and industry standards and provides maintenance services at our Part-145 (DE.145.0426) maintenance facilities located in Bavaria, Nigeria, Western Sahara and South Sudan. 


Our base maintenance facility located at our company headquarter in Bavaria has recently been expanded to an overall hangar space of 1600 m². This means we have been able to grow our maintenance capacity through the establishment of 3 dedicated servicing bays.  This exciting development also includes dedicated workshops for components and engines, parts storage and offices. This improved GHS maintenance centre has resulted in the award of 3rd party deep maintenance contracts from customers like the German Federal Police, Milestone Aviation, Rotortrade and Airbus Helicopters. 


The entire GHS team takes great pride in the full range of services we offer and continues to show excellence in all our missions performed in remote, hostile and challenging environments. Our undertaking to all our clients is to meet their expectations and maintain the highest safety standards.
