What a great piece of vintage heli-aviation attire, C-FXFX! :punk:

 

You totally made me wonder a few things. I was wondering if Trans-Canada came before or after Trans-Quebec (I'm guessing after only because of that date you mention), if both were owned by the same owner (Mr. Dan, I believe), and if they operated simultaneously. :) If one and the same, I'm guessing Trans-Canada wasn't in business very long? :huh:

 

Could be wrong on all counts; perhaps an entirely different outfit altogether! If that's the case, my apologies!

 

Thank you if anybody knows! :rolleyes:

If I remember right

 

Where it started

 

1) Matagami Transport

 

2) Trans-Quebec heli

 

3) Fredericton heli (school)

 

4) Trans- Canada wich gave them the right to work across Canada. Remember that was before the deregulation

 

And the owner was Mr Lachapelle.

 

Hope this help TQN

Just remembered that Gulf Helicopter may have been part of it as well. They were located in Sept Iles QC

Boy, don't I feel (ahem) stupid! I was having owner confusion. Was thinking of Mr. Dunn, owner of Quasar, not THQ. Doh, sorry! It was Mr. Lachapelle, of course! That is such an interesting company timeline, Jacdor...and I appreciate your efforts! It's really too bad more hasn't been written about these operators specifically, from an historical standpoint (at least none that I could find anyway) and that time period of Canadian heli aviation. If anyone ever does find any reading, I'd love to know!

 

Sorry for the temporary detour, CFXFX! I wish you all the best in gettin' back into that T if so desired! :rolleyes:

Matagami Ready Mix

Matagami Transport

Trans Quebec Helicopters

Trans Maritime Helicopters

Golfe Helicopters ( Sept-Isles )

Trans-Canada ( Overhaul Shop )

Trans- Canada Helicopters

Trans-Am Helicopters - joint venture with Richy Rasmunsen (SP?) after Shirley went belly up.

 

For a while there was Atlantic Helicopters that had a H-21 Flying Banana (( that never flew ) just to keep the charter) The helicopter is now a chip stand at the Lachute Airport - the CAF slung it in from Les Cedres with a Chinook.

 

There were also a lot of other little companies that owned various helicopters, the hangar, the furniture ect.

 

Helicogestion ( Helicopter Management Services ) which provided "management" and charged the other companies for their services.

 

It was a tangled web!

 

Geeze we had fun!
