Special missions require tailored design, support and planning, and most importantly, a mission-oriented approach. GVH Aerospace offers cost-effective conversions of transport and general aviation aircraft and helicopters for special mission roles. This includes ISR, remote sensing, special communications, maritime patrol, search and rescue, medevac and para-military uses.
We combine our core expertise in modifying civil aircraft with our heritage and experience in supporting military aviation and aeromedical operators to provide fit-for-purpose and innovative solutions to satisfy mission requirements. Our dedicated teams have proven experience in human factors, structural and systems provisions, avionics integration, electromagnetic considerations, flight test and entry-into-service requirements. We are experts in the design of permanent and quick role-change modifications, and our solutions have been tested and refined by pioneering organisations such as the Royal Flying Doctor Service in Australia, and mission critical organisations such as the Australian Maritime Safety Authority and QinetiQ PLC. Our equipment is used daily to save lives, whether onboard a dedicated air ambulance, or a rapid role conversion helicopter for search and rescue operations in remote and austere locations.
We tailor every solution to meet our customers’ unique requirements. Our expertise covers the gamut of specialty areas: from test pilots, operators and systems integration specialists, to structural design experts who handle every stage of design, procurement, modification, certification and release into service.
