Anyone hear if this has been awarded. One would think by now it has been with the start date of June 1/18

Summit...specifically Ledcor, have very deep pockets. They have the facilities at YKA, they have the aircraft ,and they have the existing contract. 

Reliable sources have none of the above. Seems like a done deal.

Good luck to all involved.

Well, I don't know if they have the aircraft, but they do have the paint jobs!   I was talking to an ex pilot from that program an he said he could barley get out of Grandforks Airport mid summer with a patient on board.  Sounds like another helijet deal.

"For a possible term of up to twelve (12) years" I am sure there are a lot of interested companies that would rent hanger space until they built there own hanger or continue to rent in YKA to do the contract. Ascent already has there medevac kits for the 902 when they worked out of YNJ and rented space to do the helijet work.
