Try Geko Agencies Limited. They have a lot of experience organising this sort of adventure. Used them in the past and Gae was excellent.
I believe that Gae was employed by Bristow and then went off on her own. Bristow International used Geko for all ferry flights and there were lots of them. Gae is excellent and is very experienced at organising everything to do with the ferry.

Thats correct, Gae used to work for Bristow and now runs Geko.

She organised all the permits, handling agents, hotels, etc for all the ferry trips I have done and she was magnificent, I highly recommend her services because you will have loads on your plate already doing the ferry flight. All her contacts and experience are invaluable and as somebody else already said: "Expensive ones upfront work out cheaper in the end."

Yes highly recommend Gae. We had a seamless trip from Oz to the UK a few years ago with every detailed covered.

Second the Gae recommendations. She supported 4 of my trips and being a fluent French speaker helped her sort the details in the Francophone countries. She used to be the Ops lady for the BHL charter S76 and company HS125.
