A quick search shows about 91 - 212, 64 - 205 and 24 - 204 on the Canadian registry.

 

I may be a bit off on those numbers, after 10 hrs in +34 heat today and a few cold Beers at home !

How does one look that up?

 

Just curious, because I've been looking for this kind of stuff for personal interest.

wasnt there a site where you could see the registration of aircrafts beeing employed by a given forestry agency....??

also it would be interesting to know roughly how many of those intermidiates are from out of province as i get some conflicting reports

Those CIFFC heli numbers have grown immensely today:

BC

Light

96

Intermediate

207

Medium

94

Heavy

23

 

That's 420 helicopters on BC fires alone! :o

 

So why am I sitting in NE BC with nothing to do?!?!? :angry:

I saw some N registered VIH machine on the Island yesterday

 

 

I saw two near Campbell River. A 205, and a S61. I don't think VIH has any other N-reg'd mediums.

 

I also saw a N-reg'd S61 near Spuzzum or Lytton, or somewhere along the Canyon (there's an airfield there somewhere, don't recall the place as I've never worked there). Not VIH, was yellow, I don't know whose.
