Specialist Aviation Services provides leading edge support to the emergency services and other major organisations which rely on aircraft. The Group has its origins in two companies, Police Aviation Services Ltd and Medical Aviation Services Ltd, both set up in the UK over 30 years ago during the infancy of emergency services aviation.
