Gama Aviation Plc has announced the award of
two long-term special mission contracts.
The first is a new three-year contract award
(with an option to extend for a further two years from the National Police Air
Service [NPAS]) for the provision of fixed-wing aircraft maintenance, continuing
airworthiness and spare parts for its new Vulcanair P68R fleet. The contract
covers the maintenance of four aircraft including daily flight inspections, line
maintenance, scheduled maintenance, and the supply of aircraft and mission
equipment parts. The aircraft, which are capable of flying in all weather, day &
night, will be deployed on mission critical tasks across England and Wales
requiring a high level of operational availability; a core competency of Gama
Aviation’s special mission support team.
“After a thorough, fair and transparent tender
process we are pleased to award the contract to Gama Aviation (Engineering) Ltd
(a subsidiary of Gama Aviation Plc), who put forward a competitive bid of
impressively high quality. We look forward to working with them into the
future,” said Charlotte Daynes,
Senior Category Manager - ICT & Aviation, Yorkshire & the Humber Regional
The second is the award by an existing client
of an aerial survey contract for a new initial term of five years. The contract
involves the operational management and piloting of the client’s aircraft and
was awarded following a competitive tender process.
Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are delighted to be starting the year
positively with these two important contract awards, representing over £10
million in revenues over the period of the contracts. Both were competitive and
wining 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.”
Gama Aviation retains additional special
mission contracts with NHS Scotland and the Ministry of Defence.
