Job posted March 30, 2022
We’ve expanded the fleet in 2022 with the addition of a couple BK117 B2 helicopters. We are currently seeking applications for licensed BK117 Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AME) for both full-time and seasonal summer contract positions. These positions would be operationally controlled out of our Prince George, BC facility and will require travel to various work locations across Canada including locations in remote Northern BC.
Yellowhead Helicopters Ltd. is looking for licensed AMEs that are endorsed on BK 117 series for secured project work. Reporting directly to our Director of Maintenance, these are full time or contract positions, which are available immediately. Postings will be flexible for residing location; however there is additional incentive offered for BK117 AMEs willing to relocate to Prince George.
For all positions, AME must hold a Transport Canada approved Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (M) license; endorsement on aircraft is preferable; strong understanding of the Canadian Air Regulations, excellent communication skills; ability to follow documented policies and procedures including pre-employment drug and alcohol test; Class 5 driver’s license and acceptable driver’s abstract; and appropriate skills and experience listed by type below. Applicant must not have any criminal convictions that would restrict a foreign work visa.
