Canadian Helicopters Loses $10.3-million Contract With U.s. Air Force


Recommended Posts

It would sure be nice to know if their origin is south of the boarder, because Canada is asking for an exemption from the "buy American" program, which might have played a part in this contract.

 

Nope, they're as Canadian as it gets. Luc does have an American subsidiary though, as does VIH, Alpine and few others.

 

It might help a bit if folks understood the CTA 25% ownership rule (and its USA mirror image) a little better.

They are the former Huison Air Services out of Northern Ontario. They are 100% Canadian with an American Division.

Sounds like two out of the three pillars aren't doing so well. When I was there the smrt people told us that air ambulance, maintenance contracts and the north warning system were the "three pillars of canadian." I wonder if they are now wishing they hadn't left the bases with no support.

Luc Pylon started Nipissing Heli out of Nipissing, Ont. with a 206, L and 205. He is as much an American as Osama Bin Ladin.

With WP helping him run the show, CHL will have the contract back within 12 months.

Can't disagree with that!!

 

All they need to do is add BC and FN to the plan.
