Employment opportunities – January 2022

Our beautiful bases in Northern BC are looking for you, qualified helicopter pilots and aircraft maintenance engineers to join their teams.

Jobs posted December 30, 2021

Hiring is usually a year-round process here at Yellowhead Helicopters, but more so in the fall/winter season as flying slows down a tiny bit and we catch our breath. 

Before we know it, spring melt will arrive and the next recurrent training session begins.

We have several job positions for helicopter pilots and AMEs available and currently active.  Our employment opportunities can regularly be found on websites including the Gov’t of Canada Job Bank and Vertical Magazine career forum as well as Indeed and Google Alerts.

Our employees are required to be available for remote work, travel long distances as our various bases are spread out across the glorious mountains and valleys of northern BC and into Alberta.  Wildfire season usually takes a few of our teams even further across Canada.

Applicants must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada or have a valid Canadian work permit.

If interested, email your applications to

We thank all applicants, however only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
