Our History and Mission
Our companies’ success is fundamentally based upon strong customer service, a reputation for quality and safety, a loyal customer base and a dominant position in our markets. GSH and Air Tindi provide an essential service to many of their customers as access to and movement at the majority of their customers’ locations are only possible via aircraft. This includes the movement and transport of people, freight, equipment and essential supplies. Discovery Mining builds custom solutions for many of these customers as well. Discovery Air Defence Services provides essential services to their customers in the form of cost-effective government outsourced aviation service solutions.
