Swiss role for Spectralux

RVL today completed a series of flights in the vicinity of Bern, Switzerland where aircraft G-BWLF was undertaking flight trials on behalf of US-based avionics company Spectralux, who were testing specialised communication equipment for use in the avionics market worldwide.

This is the first time we have worked with Spectralux. We welcome them as a new customer and hope that this successful first contract may result in us working together again soon.

Environment Agency contract renewed for further 5 years

RVL Group is pleased to announce that the Environment Agency has awarded us a new 5 year contract for the operation of two dedicated aircraft. We are delighted to be continuing our close and successful working relationship with the Environment Agency – one that now goes back more than 16 years.

The decision to retain both a Cessna 404 and Reims Cessna 406 on national LiDAR and photographic surveillance duties is a very satisfying vote of confidence in us and the changes we have made in our business since the last contract was awarded to us in 2008 when we were still operating out of older, smaller premises in Coventry.

The Environment Agency contract includes the provision of a fully-serviced suite of offices within RVL Group’s facility at East Midlands Airport, giving it instant access to the aircraft and hangar where their specialist equipment is stored and installed.
