British helicopter training company wins Queen’s Award

May 10, 2022

HeliOperations has won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade for Outstanding Short-Term Growth in overseas sales.  As such, they are one of 225 UK organisations to receive a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise which recognizes exceptional short-term growth in overseas sales during the last three years.

HeliOperations is based at Portland in Dorset, delivering helicopter training and other aviation related services. Since purchasing the Portland site in 2017, HeliOperations has become a leading provider of training, with a primary focus on Search and Rescue operating the iconic Sea King helicopter. The Company has grown its workforce from just two employees to around 50 staff inside five years, providing employment in high technology trades and contributing considerably to the local economy.

Additional facilities have been established in Cornwall where it operates a simulator with additional maintenance and storage facilities at Somerton in Somerset. A growing portfolio of international customers includes the German and Pakistan Navies, the Royal Norwegian and Bangladesh Air Forces plus the UK’s Empire Test Pilots’ School

Its rapidly established status as a key player within the aviation training sector is expected to expand significantly over the coming years. The recent approval for the development of an additional building at its Portland base has further demonstrated their long-term commitment to the area.
