Military Airlift Support
Rotary-Wing and Fixed-Wing Expeditionary Military Airlift Support
CHI Aviation, a Veteran-Owned Small Business (VOSB), is one of very few top-tier operators providing both Rotary-Wing and Fixed-Wing Expeditionary Airlift to the US Military in some of the most remote and austere Areas of Responsibility (AORs) in the world. Since 2011, CHI Aviation has maintained Commercial Airlift Review Board (CARB) approval, supporting the US Department of Defense (DoD) in Afghanistan with a fleet of Sikorsky S-61N heavy-lift helicopters. CHI Aviation also provides CARB-approved Fixed-Wing airlift support to the US Department of Defense (DoD) with a fleet of CASA 212s.
Our US Military partners downrange know that they can trust CHI Aviation’s safe, reliable and versatile airlift support platforms because of our impeccable safety record, our long-standing Operational Readiness Rates (ORR) of more than 97%, and our turnkey solutions which match the right machine to their complex and critical missions.
