Bamberg-based BHS Helicopterservice GmbH initiated the purchase of the helicopter business of its Stuttgart-based cooperation partner, DC Aviation GmbH, signing the contract on 2 May 2, 2019. The acquisition of the subsidiary, DC Aviation Switzerland AG, will help the exclusive business helicopter flight provider expand its portfolio of services.

The partnership between DC Aviation Stuttgart and BHS Helicopterservice established in 2016 will continue unchanged for now.

Initially, BHS Helicopterservice and DC Aviation Switzerland will continue to operate under their existing names at their respective locations in Bamberg/Germany and Zurich/Switzerland. Both companies will also keep their current teams. DC Aviation Switzerland employs 16 people, while BHS Helicopterservice employs eight.

“BHS Helicopterservice and DC Aviation have enjoyed a close, successful partnership for more than three years. I see tremendous potential in the acquisition of the Swiss subsidiary: in continuing to grow our business with helicopter charter flights and helicopter management in Germany and Switzerland,” explains BHS CEO Maximilian Stoschek.
