At the head of the Portland Canal, the west end of Hwy 37, and adjacent to Hyder Alaska lies the town of Stewart, BC. Our helicopter base at the Stewart Airport is strategically located in the mineral rich “Golden Triangle” of northwestern BC. Stewart has a rich history in mineral exploration and aviation; our team has the experience working in this challenging environment. From resource exploration to forestry to tourism, Yellowhead Helicopters is proud to bring its 40+ years of experience to this community.

Stewart, BC is currently our closest base to the Stikine region and the communities of Bell 2, Bob Quinn Lake, Iskut, Dease Lake, & Kitsault, as well as Alaska.
