Our Approach

Renowned for operational excellence

A trusted partner to both civil and military clients

British International Helicopters has broad experience across Military Support, Search and Rescue (SAR), Offshore Energy and Onshore Utility services, which has led BIH to be recognised as a leader in its field.  

Our military contracts include an 18-year partnership with the UK Ministry of Defence supporting operations in the Falkland Islands with a range of helicopter services, as well as delivering a combined Search and Rescue (SAR) and Support Helicopter service to the British Forces South Atlantic Islands operations as part of Team AAR. As part of this contract, our team wrote the operational manual for the use of the AW189 in helicopter Search and Rescue roles – a world first, in 2016.

BIH is an active member of the rUK Aviation Working Group and has more than 30 years' experience in providing commercial helicopter services across the UK, Europe and Middle East. Our specially equipped aircraft and skilled flying team support a wide range of commercial organisations with a comprehensive range of utilities services. BIH is also part of Renewable UK and works in partnership with a range of clients to provide helicopter support services across the life cycle of offshore wind farm projects, flying in often extremely challenging conditions to deliver helicopter support services during the construction, commissioning, operation and decommissioning phases.
