Yellowhead Fleet

Yellowhead Helicopters operates a large, diverse fleet of aircraft; all of which are maintained to the highest standard by our Transport Canada and Bell Helicopter approved Maintenance and Overhaul department. Standard operational equipment such as long lines, nets, endless straps, drip torches, water buckets, cargo baskets, and fertilizer buckets are always available to help accomplish whatever external load project you need to complete.

We can also install your specialized equipment on our aircraft and with the necessary certificates in place. If your equipment requires certification we will provide assistance in order to get the proper approvals. To help maintain the safety and security of our crews, clients and equipment we offer several safety features on our aircraft including: engine anti-ice and automatic re-light kits, shoulder restraints for all occupants, satellite tracking, built in Iridium sat phones, ambulance kits and loud hailers.

Whether your needs require a helicopter for a simple aerial platform, or your project demands multiple aircraft and support equipment, 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.

The following payload calculations are done at 2000 feet ASL and 15c with 200lbs pilot.
