Gama Aviation, based in the UK and providing a wealth of business aviation services internationally, has announced two long-term special mission contracts. The first is a three-year deal, with the option to extend for two years, with the National Police Air Service (NPAS), while the other is a five-year arrangement with an existing client, ICT Aviation. Gama already has special mission contracts with NHS Scotland and the Ministry of Defence.
For the NPAS, Gama will focus on the maintenance of its new Vulcanair P68R fleet, consisting of four aircraft, which includes daily flight inspections, lined maintenance, scheduled maintenance, and the supply of aircraft and mission equipment parts. For ICT Aviation, Gama will oversee the operational management and piloting of its aircraft, with the contract awarded after a competitive tender process.
Marwan Khalek, CEO, Gama Aviation, said, “We are delighted to be starting the year positively with these two important contract awards, representing over £10m (US$12m) in revenues over the respective periods. Both were competitive and winning them reflects our strong special mission capability in the UK both as a primary and secondary contractor. Clients are attracted to our bespoke, turnkey solutions that offer a unique blend of air and ground services which are ideally suited to complex, mission critical, assignments.”
Charlotte Daynes, senior category manager, ICT Aviation, added, “After a thorough, fair and transparent tender process we are pleased to award the contract to Gama Aviation, who put forward a competitive bid of impressively high quality. We look forward to working with them into the future.”
