BHS Aviation takes advantage of Europe's growing charter market
With the activation of the Swiss AOC (Air Operator Certificate) for fixed-wing aircraft, BHS Aviation is responding to developments in the European charter market.
"Being an aircraft operator in the heart of Europe, we saw an opportunity in the increasing demand for individual short- and medium-haul charter flights. The COVID-19 pandemic and all its implications has motivated us," says Daniel Suter, CEO of BHS Aviation AG.

BHS Aviation contributes to medical care in the Ukraine
The BHS Aviation Group is donating 5,000 Euros to a project run by "Mrija". The non-profit organization was founded in Würzburg immediately after the start of the war in Ukraine and provides aid for the Ukrainian population. One focus is on supplying clinics and hospitals with pharmaceuticals as well as medical equipment and supplies.
The money donated by BHS Aviation stems from a raffle at the "Treffpunkt Airport" trade fair in Schwäbisch Hall. The equivalent value of the panoramic flights with our BO105 over the Adolf Würth Airport was raised by BHS Aviation and made available for medical aid in the Ukraine.

Innovations and future strategies of decentralized aviation
On June 28 and 29, 2022, the "Treffpunkt: Airport" trade show took place at the airfield in Schwäbisch Hall (EDTY). The focus was on the climate-friendly transformation of decentralized aviation. Disruptive technologies and mobility trends in aviation were highlighted at presentations, panel discussions and workshops.
BHS Aviation Group presented its service portfolio such as executive charter of jets and helicopters, aircraft management and handling services on the outdoor area. Visitors could also view the Leonardo AW109SP business helicopter.

BHS Aviation GmbH receives unlimited CAMO approval
The German Federal Office of Civil Aeronautics (LBA) has granted our company an unlimited Continuing Airworthiness Management Approval (CAMO) effective March 15, 2022.
In this conversion process, the temporary approved CAMO according to Regulation (EU) No. 1321/2014 Annex 1 (Part M) Section A Subpart G was successfully transitioned to one according to Annex Vc (Part CAMO) and completed. In this context, the corresponding manuals were also revised.
The approval is based on Regulation (EU) No. 1321/2014 Annex Vc (Part-CAMO) CAMO.B.330, as last amended by Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/1963 of 08 November 2021.
As part of our complete or flexible management solutions, we also offer CAMO services to helicopter owners.
Instrument flight operations in Bamberg
It is now possible to fly to the Bamberg-Breitenau airport under instrument flight rules (IFR). This means that approaches and departures are safer and more weather-independent than with the previous visual flight traffic. In addition, larger aircraft up to 10 tons takeoff weight can take off and land in Bamberg.
Business flights to and from Bamberg can be planned better under the new conditions and can also be carried out in poor visibility. This benefits Bamberg as a business location and its companies.
Extensive construction measures were undertaken for instrument flight operations, such as the shortening of a high-voltage line, the reconstruction of the weather station and the expansion of the approach and centerline lighting. The Aero Club Bamberg e.V. has been granted permission to operate the landing field according to visual flight and instrument flight rules. Furthermore, an approach lighting system may be erected.
The airspace in the vicinity of the airfield is established as a so-called Radio Mandatory Zone (RMZ) and classified as airspace E 1,000 ft AGL.
Cooperation between BHS Aviation GmbH and Hotel Bayerischer Hof Munich
The Hotel Bayerischer Hof Munich is now also an official partner of BHS Aviation GmbH. Main part of this cooperation is the exclusive recommendation of flight services to the guests of the Hotel Bayerischer Hof as well as the recommendation of the Hotel Bayerischer Hof to the customers of the BHS Aviation Group. Thanks to a general permission for take-offs and landings outside airfields and airports, it is possible for us to fly the guests of both hotels as close as possible to their desired destination or to pick them up from there.
BHS Aviation becomes a member of the Drivers & Business Club Munich
BHS Aviation, as a member and partner of the Drivers & Business Club Munich, offers members and guests exclusive access to customized flight services with VIP helicopters. With a general permit for external take-offs and landings, we can take off from your company premises, a parking lot or a green field and fly you directly to Munich. There we land on the green area in front of the clubhouse. These point-to-point connections save you valuable time and annoying traffic jams.
You can find more information on our partner page.
BHS Aviation to become independent aviation company
BHS Aviation GmbH Bamberg has received approval to operate as a commercial aviation company from the German Federal Aviation Office. The Air Operator Certificate (AOC) is the prerequisite for transporting passengers, mail or freight by helicopter in commercial air traffic. In addition, BHS Aviation has been certified as Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) for helicopters and will further expand its helicopter management business on this basis.
