Who we are:

Blackcomb Helicopters is one of the founding practitioners (outside of Parks Canada) of the Long Line Rescue System. Accordingly, Blackcomb Helicopters has extensive Class D experience and was instrumental in the development of equipment and rescue techniques now used by others in the field. Blackcomb Helicopter's pilots receive annual training and are certified by the Air Rescue Association of Canada (“ARA”) as Helicopter External Transport System (“HETS”) pilots. The company performs rescues throughout the Sea to Sky Corridor and beyond. Since 1990, training and actual rescue missions have been conducted with Whistler SAR, Squamish SAR, North Shore SAR and Pemberton SAR.
