With an excellent safety record and tens of thousand of flight hours, Lakelse Air is now one of the largest and most called upon aviation charter companies in Terrace and Northern British Columbia.
Lakelse Air Ltd. Helicopter Services has been airborne since 1991. Initially conceived to support the remote logging operations of Bear Creek Contracting, now part of the Bear Creek Group, Lakelse air rapidly gained a reputation for speed, safety and efficiency.
Responding to resource industry needs, we expanded our services to make them available to all Bear Creek Group customers.
In December 2014, Lakelse Air expanded again to partner with Pacific Western Helicopters and become the Bear Creek Aviation Group.
Today, the two companies offer charter services and heavy lift helicopter services to clients in British Columbia and across Canada. We provide helicopter services to many diverse sectors, including mining, seismic, technical services industries, environmental support, fire-fighting operations, search & rescue, emergency medical services, and heavy-lift aerial construction.
With a network of bases across Northern BC – in Terrace, Prince Rupert, Hazelton, Dease Lake and Bob Quinn (during summer months) – the Bear Creek Aviation Group is in a prime position to service key locales in Northern and Northwestern BC.
Our Mission: To be the leader in the markets we serve, unrelenting in the pursuit of safety and employee excellence, while exceeding our customers’ expectations for service.
Safety Slogan: Before you Start, Be Safety Smart!
