According to industry news, there is a shortage of helicopter pilots and maintenance personnel. The trend is expected to continue well beyond the next decade and may impact the ability of helicopter operators to provide their services, some considered essential. In Canada, helicopters and their crews support search and rescue operations; forest fire management; mining activities; oil/gas exploration; wildlife surveys; private transportation; tourism initiatives; air ambulance services and much more.
To address this personnel shortage in Canada, a group of industry professionals is working on various initiatives to support the growth of the Canadian helicopter industry by promoting and developing flying and maintenance careers. We are passionate about the industry we work in and as we look beyond the current challenges, we are excited to bring awareness to the career opportunities in the Canadian helicopter industry via this website.
