History: Skytech was formed during 1989 offering helicopters for world-wide utility services. During 1992 they concentrated on heavy lift transports for which a joint venture was signed with Russian helicopter manufacture Mil which provided some robust helicopters. The companies assignments included aerial works, air ambulance/medevac, pax and freight charters, fire services, hazardous freight, offshore, police and survey/surveillance. On February 18 2008 the company was declared bankrupt for so-called unpaid depts, but as this was not the case an appeal against this decision was made, so by June 2008 this action was cancelled. The company remains fully operational, since 1989 on duty in over 35 countries.
