Yellowhead Helicopters Heli-Solutions

Yellowhead Helicopters provides helicopter solutions to our clients from a base network located throughout British Columbia and Alberta. We are also well equipped to be able to mobilize on short notice and support our customers in remote locations across Canada. 

With enviably one of the best safety records in Canadian helicopter aviation we continue to provide safe and efficient services to customers from coast to coast. All of the aircraft we operate are maintained to the highest standard by our in house Transport Canada and Bell Helicopter approved Maintenance and Overhaul department. We have received accolades from many individuals and organizations as a result of our commitment to operational safety, including awards from the Helicopter Association International and the Helicopter Association of Canada.
 
In order to provide our clientele with the quality of service they expect we have developed a crew training program that begins with an on-line familiarization and examination process and culminates with emergency and job specific exercises being accomplished in the aircraft. Our education process has evolved to a point where our crews are trained not only in basic flight operations, but also provided with the opportunity to hone their skills in job specific areas such as long lining, drip torching, cone harvesting, aerial seeding, airborne geophysics, sock line towing, power line and pipe line patrols, drill moving, fire suppression and heli-skiing. All of our air crew are highly skilled professionals trained specifically to help you complete your project on time and on budget.
