Babcock MCS Germany
Babcock MCS Germany has almost 20 years of experience in helicopter emergency services, pilot training and the Humanitarian and Disaster Relief (HDR) market. We make use of this experience during every mission, providing our clients the highest degree of professionalism and reliability.
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.
Babcock MCS Germany also runs a training academy in Augsburg, providing complete initial, high-quality helicopter training for private and professional pilots. Our training catalogue also covers type ratings on various single and multi-engine helicopters, mission-specific training for external loads, fire-fighting, surveillance, tactical flying and mountain training. Our International training academy builds on the experience gained by our pilots and technicians while on global assignments - from the Caribbean to East Asia.
Our cooperation with Airbus Helicopters, the global market-leading helicopter manufacturer further widens the spectrum of services Babcock MCS Germany can offer and allows for a large range of type rating and training options comprising various Airbus Helicopters models.
In addition to Babcock MCS Germany’s Humanitarian and Disaster Relief and training capability, we are in the process of becoming a Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) provider in Germany.
Lastly, our state-of-the-art EASA Part 145 maintenance service centre gives us full control over the safety of our helicopters during our mission critical operations.
