Helicopter repair facility takes flight
A new 235,000 square-foot helicopter maintenance facility will be built at Boundary Bay Airport in Delta, B.C.
Heli-One, a subsidiary of CHC Helicopter Corporation, is constructing the $30 million facility for workshops and office space.
It will be capable of supporting a wide range of components, aircraft types including AgustaWestland, Bell, Eurocopter and Sikorsky.
The new facility will allow Heli-One to provide total helicopter support and improved efficiency for CHC’s rapidly expanding fleet of aircraft and for third-party customers around the world.
It will allow Heli-One to consolidate existing workshops and facilities in the Vancouver area, and create additional capacity.
Completion of the project is scheduled for October 2007.
