Blackcomb Aviation ordered two Eurocopter EC135s at the Helicopter Association of Canada conference in Vancouver. The operator is based in Pemberton, British Columbia.
“With safety and efficient service at the core of Blackcomb Aviation’s principal objectives, the decision to add the EC135’s to our current fleet was an easy one,” said Jonathan Burke, president and COO, Blackcomb Aviation. “Our goal is to supply our customers with an aircraft that will get a diverse range of jobs done in a safe and efficient manner.”
Blackcomb Aviation currently operates a Eurocopter fleet of both single and twin engine aircraft which includes four AS355’s, an AS350 B2, two AS350 B3’s, and an EC130 B4.
“Eurocopter Canada has recently seen a definitive move toward new twin-engine aircraft for Canadian utility operators, specifically in the hydro market” said Romain Trapp, president & CEO, ECL. “With the positive response the EC135 has been experiencing in terms of performance and operational efficiency, we are certain that Blackcomb’s procurement of these aircraft will be a perfect fit for their mission requirements.”
