Bell 206 Jetranger
The Jetranger is one of the true workhorses of the Canadian aviation industry. Powered by the Rolls Royce 250 - C20B turbine engine, the Jetranger is light weight and affordable to operate.
Airbus AS350 Astar
With its multipurpose platform and proven track record, this single engine, intermediate class aircraft is becoming the standard in the Canadian aviation industry. Lakelse Air operates two different models of the AS350. The B2 model is powered by the factory installed Turbomeca Arriel 1D1 engine while the D2 model is powered by an upgraded Lycoming LTS 101-700. The upgraded D2 offers better high and hot capabilities with a reduced fuel burn.
Pacific Western Helicopters
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.
