When emergency medical assistance is needed, every second may count, making helicopters a unique life-preserving asset. Air ambulance operators are looking for operational reliability, speed and flexibility plus the vital support of a strong network of after-sales service. All leading makers naturally offer these market models that are designed specifically for HEMS missions.

These helicopters all provide spacious and efficient cabin volume, height and layout, low levels of vibration, speed, agility as well as the ability to land almost anywhere. As independent consultants we can provide advice and guidance on the pros and cons of each of these.

At Savback, in addition to state of the art new-builds, we also provide good value new and pre-owned HEMS helicopters through international transactions and refitting.

We provide police and customs & excise helicopter mission customization, based on the best and most cost-effective solutions available, to satisfy the expectations of all types of homeland security clients and operators. Our expertize and that of our completions partners extends across mission configuration design and oversight, installation, and integration of surveillance equipment such as night vision cameras as well as avionic packages to meet specific mission requirements.

Our specialized partner’ teams are able to oversee installation of customized kits or equipment. Furthermore, our knowhow extends to all key elements including cabin design and ergonomics, auxiliary equipment as well as vibration and acoustic control. Perfect to patrol, protect and pursue.

Our 35+ years’ industry experience and successful track record in this sector means that, as well as providing the very latest and best equipped new law enforcement helicopters from all manufacturers, we can also provide high-spec good value new and pre-owned homeland security mission-equipped helicopters through international transactions and refitting.

For those in peril, at sea or on land, search & rescue helicopters provide hope – with pilot and crew often pitted against the toughest of odds. Range, ruggedness and resilience in the harshest operational conditions are all requirements of a reliable and robust search and rescue helicopter. At Savback, we have relationships with all manufacturers as well as sourcing new and pre-owned helicopters for SAR mission conversion. Auxiliary search & rescue fit-out may include specialist sonar scanning equipment, enhanced vision cameras, life support facilities and winches.

As with other mission-specific refits, through our specialist partners, we will support you with advising and sourcing the optimum make and model for completion or conversion into a robust search & rescue asset and provide you with the trusted connections to complete the SAR mission refitting process as a seamless turnkey project.

In addition to new helicopters of all makes and models, we can provide the perfect pre-owned package. We always have several specialized parapublic mission configured helicopters in our inventory. Please see our latest featured helicopters below.

Moreover, we can also architect international transactions whereby the most up-to-date platform for the available investment can be delivered through import and refitting of a preowned airframe. This is enabled by our market intelligence, network and unrivalled access to diverse global markets and sectors as well as Off-Market helicopters.

Flexible leasing for Parapublic helicopters and fleets

For many years, we have been specialists in helicopter leasing, with long term plans available. Our lease fleet versatility enables us to frequently lease aircraft to other operators, corporate or governmental bodies (such as HEMS) as well as to individuals.

Helicopter leasing plans can be wet or dry. Wet leasing is an arrangement where we will provide an aircraft, complete crew, maintenance, and insurance to you. Dry leasing involves providing a lease with an aircraft but without a crew.
