At the head of the Portland Canal, the northwest 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 flying 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 areas of Bell 2, Bob Quinn Lake, Alice Arm, Kitsault, Dease Lake and Iskut.
This base is open year-round, however, during the winter months it is operated with minimal crew.
