Everett Aviation will provide helicopter medical evacuation (medevac) services to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the British Army Training Unit in Kenya (BATUK) under a contract announced on 14 December.

The contract for the service will run for three years, with an extension option for a fourth year. Operations commenced on December 1st 2016. During peak periods, the contract will engage three of Everett’s BK117 helicopters in medevac configuration.

Simon Everett, CEO at Everett Aviation, said: ‘As a regional operator, we are absolutely delighted to have secured this significant contract in the face of serious competition from large international players. We have supported the British Army for a number of years and we look forward to building an ever stronger relationship as we serve them over the coming months and years.’

The company has established a new operating base at Nanyuki in Kenya to support the BATUK mission.
