| Who We Are
Yellowhead Helicopters is a privately held Canadian company that has been providing commercial helicopter solutions to the public, industry and government since 1975.
From helicopter bases strategically located throughout BC and Alberta we have supported the forestry, mining, petroleum, utility and tourism industries for over 40 years. Through well-planned growth we have continued to renew and update our services and equipment in order to keep pace with the ever-changing demands of the industries we support.
Our management team, along with our experienced air crews, will work with you to ensure that you are provided with the aircraft and equipment best suited to your specific needs.
By choosing Yellowhead Helicopters you get the distinct advantage of partnering with a company that is small enough to provide you with personalized service; yet large enough to have the infrastructure and support network to ensure that your job gets completed on time and on budget.
| Why Choose Us ?
With enviably one of the best safety records in Canadian helicopter aviation, we continue to provide safe and efficient services to customers throughout Canada. All of the aircraft we operate are maintained to the highest standard by our in-house Transport Canada and Bell OEM approved Maintenance and Overhaul department. We have received accolades from many individuals and organizations as a result of our commitment to operational safety, including awards from the Helicopter Association International and the Helicopter Association of Canada.
In order to provide our clientele with the quality of service they expect we have developed a crew training program that begins with an on-line familiarization and examination process and culminates with emergency and job specific exercises being accomplished in the aircraft. Our education process has evolved to a point where our crews are trained not only in basic flight operations, but also provided with the opportunity to hone their skills in job specific areas such as long lining, drip torching, cone harvesting, aerial seeding, airborne geophysics, sock line towing, power line and pipeline patrols, drill moving, fire suppression and heli-skiing. All of our air crews are highly skilled professionals trained specifically to help you complete your project on time and on budget.
