WestCoast Helicopters: Getting a Start in Port McNeill, B.C.

Organization -

Port McNeill, B.C. A success story in aviation was born in Port McNeill, B.C. and branched out into the province.

“West Coast Helicopters is a light to intermediate helicopter service provider with bases in Nanaimo, Campbell River, Port McNeill and Bella Coola. Our fleet of helicopters consists of nine intermediate Airbus AStar helicopters, an Airbus Twinstar 355 N as well as three light Bell Jetrangers, a Bell LongRanger, two MD500s and one Robinson R44.

As well as our helicopter flying service, West Coast Helicopters is an approved maintenance provider for Airbus, MD500, Bell 206, Robinson R22 and R44 helicopters. At our Nanaimo base we have a complete state of the art paint booth and painting facility. West Coast Helicopters is approved and experienced in all aspects of third party maintenance for other commercial operators. It is easy to believe that our sixteen new and very well maintained helicopters as well as our four state of the art hangars and maintenance facilities are our best assets but in fact they are not! Our best assets are our fifty strong, focused and dedicated team members that show up every day to do the very best job they can.” (www.westcoasthelicopters.com)
