Originally founded in 1998 as Rainbow Helicopters in the historical city of Augsburg, one of Germany’s key aviation industry clusters, Heli Aviation was acquired by Babcock International Group in 2016.

Our expertise is regularly tested in challenging conditions and complex operations during humanitarian disaster relief operations for some of the world's largest crisis response organizations.

Our customers trust our experienced crews to minimize risk whilst operating in crises areas, allowing them to safely continue with their job: bringing supplies, medical attention and other support to those affected by natural or man-made disasters.
