Sky Maintenance Services (SMS) was founded in 2009 when SkyGroup was incorporated. Its purpose was to complement the range of services provided by the Group which was already active in the realm of helicopters. It was also important to build on the wealth of Gilbert Schweitzer’s knowledge as skilled pilot and fine connoisseur of this specialized world, so that this wealth could be brought to our clients and partners.
Castellet Airport was chosen after carefully studying potential
sites and required resources; this site, ideally located in the South of France,
proved to combine all the qualities of an international airport equipped with the
latest technologies and was close to the Paul Ricard track.
This site matched perfectly the goals set for SMS.
