Bond Aviation Group

With a fleet of 39 helicopters, Bond Aviation Group flies workers to offshore drilling rigs for companies such as BP, Conoco Phillips and Maersk. It also provides search and rescue operations, and supports the emergency services with air ambulances and police helicopters. The company was founded in the 1960s by David Bond, who sold it to Helicopter Services Group (HSG) in 1996. In 1999 Bond’s sons Stephen and Peter led a management buyout of a division of HSG, and a new Bond Aviation Group was formed. Sales have grown 62% a year from £14.8m in 2006 to £62.7m in 2009.
