Good on Bighorn and Gemini (unless those prices are "dry").......no comment on the rest. What a joke. These guys are just plain old bad for the industry IMO. $1094.00 for a B3? Laughable. What's a BA worth? $750? Wet? Less?


I guess when it's your helicopters not flying you'll do anything to make a buck....understandable but sad.

This is a sign of the times for our industy!

When the pack is hungry they will eat anything to survive, and the alberta contracts just fed guardian poison.

I am sure Alberta will be wondering why they pay 1900 for the B3 in the summer and will have a tough time justifying any rate increases for next season!!!

Hold the rates boys! We are starting down a slippery slope! :shock:
