Overview:Gulf Helicopters Company (GHC) was originally founded as a Domestic Aviation Service provider in 1970 by recognizing the prospective opportunities for helicopter services within the Gulf States. We began operations in full swing in 1973 with its first operational base in Doha, State of Qatar. The state owned Qatar General Petroleum Corporation (QP) fully acquired GHC in 1998 as a subsidiary. After a decade, in 2008, Gulf Helicopters together with Al-Koot Insurance Company and Gulf Drilling International were consolidated to form Gulf International Services (GIS), a public shareholding enterprise that has been listed on Doha Securities Market (DSM).
From our humble beginning, we have grown over the years as an International Aviation Service provider, serving International and Domestic Oil and Gas Companies and other clients Worldwide. Over the years, we have earned ample recognition across the world operating from Europe to the Middle East to the Far East.
