October 10th was another exciting milestone accomplished for GHS, after countless hours put in by our flight ops team we achieved a lasting desired goal to become a certified Helicopter Hoist Operator (HHO). With over 250 practical hoist cycles in a sequence of over three days, we achieved the last requirement for the approval certificate. Amongst this training, we qualified three of our highly trained Type Rating Instructors (TRI) and Examiners (TRE) for further company internal HHO training. As well for this hoist training, a well experienced and highly qualified Hoist-Operator-Instructor joined the GHS team to train further hoist operators to outstanding standards. With the accepted HHO approval, GHS will heavily focus on additional segments in which we can further assist our clients.
We are pleased to announce that GHS is an approved EASA HEMS operator. Here at GHS we are excited to establish a footprint in the air ambulance rescue sector and look forward to working with our partners across the region.
As the demand continues to surge for qualified rescue operators, we understand our client's needs and will actively provide our services at the highest quality.

Global Helicopter Service is the 150th Aircraft Operator to join the BARS Program and GHS is the seventh
European operator to achieve BARS Registration and second German operator.
The Flight Safety Foundation has established a global aviation safety standard designed to improve safety in operations involving remote and hazardous environments. The Program aims to raise aviation safety standards assisting resource companies with the management of aviation risk for their personnel. GHS recently successfully was audited and accredited with BARS Registration. This standard is recognised by many professional organisations worldwide.
“We are proud of joining the BARS Program,” GHS CEO Dominik Goldfuss said, “it will contribute to our continuing improvements to our operation standards being monitored by highly experienced aviation auditors and evaluated against a worldwide industry developed aviation standard.”
Global Helicopter Service GmbH was founded in January 2014 and entered the market as a new but highly
motivated, German Helicopter Service Provider with a well-rounded background. Their services include complete Operational Support in Commercial Helicopter Air Transport and related maintenance. GHS has a strong track record; operating humanitarian and mission-critical helicopters, especially in West and Central Africa for the United Nations/World Food Program (UN/WFP), Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders (MSF) and other end users.
Source: Vertical Mag: On 18th of January, three GHS Helicopters were re-tasked at short notice from WFP missions to respond to an urgent demand for airlift of injured civilian casualties from a “friendly fire incident” in the North East region of Nigeria, Rann.
The GHS Bell 412 and Bell 212 helicopters are based in Maiduguri on a WFP Aid contract but when the
incident was reported, GHS were called upon to respond by assisting moving medical teams,
equipment and evacuating injured civilians. The GHS in-country team were very quick to react. The
helicopters were re-roled with stretcher systems and were immediately tasked demonstrating again,
that GHS is a very dynamic, capable and mission focused company. Eight missions were flown in direct
support of the incident and more missions for GHS are planned over the next few days. Dozens of
injured victims could be rescued.
GHS has a proven history in supporting NGO’s in difficult and demanding environments. During the
recent Ebola Crisis in West Africa, GHS responded and flew for MSF and UNWFP/UNMEER and UK
DFID/Gritrock, directly supporting the international Ebola response.
Borno State: On 17th January 2017, at approx 12:00hrs, an Air force Alpha Jet committed a friendly
fire incident by dropped 02 bombs on an IDP camp at Rann village of Kala Balge LGA, killing possibly
as many as 20 international aid workers injured as well as between 52-100+ IDPs killed and between
120-150 others injured. The exact number of casualties has not yet been ascertained but many of
those killed are allegedly children. The incident allegedly occurred when the fighter jet flew over the
camp and dropped the bombs in the camp during a food distribution exercise before ground troops
could communicate with the pilot about what it was.
