Ranger, Maple Leaf, Lakeland, Northern Wings, Rotor Tec, Canwest. Bow, Laverandrye (sp?), Marlin, BC Yukon Air, Rotor Spray Consultants, Lambair. There was another big company in or around Ottawa pre Viking that ran vertol 44 in addition to Allouettes. Maybe some of the old Viking hands can help out?  Hang on, Sky Rotors!Okanogan, Lac St Jean Aviation, Dighem, wow. Sept-Isle heli.

Getting some cobwebs out there bud...good one. My Buddy Ray Gilstorf worked for Sky Rotors...told me the story about the 2  vertols that smucked into each other out in the bush and they tied trees to the sides of the airframes to fly them back to town for further repairs....unreal! He also worked for Northern Wings ...Autair and Viking as well as Midwest and Custom.
