There have been a lot of 1 or 2 man ops.... I think of Hi-Wood Heli (Hermann Lorenz), Aero-copters (they were just outside of Cochrane), Canmore Heli (Lance and Rocky Cooper and Lances' son Todd)....

Liftair originated from a company in the east, not sure which one, possibly Autair. Russ Shand and a bunch of other guys migrated west in the early 60/70's.

Hope he is still with us...nice guy...did my PPC in 1996.

Jim Gray is still around indeed. Retired, last was the chief pilot at Kississing Helicopters, who were sort of absorbed into Custom a year or so back, but he was already retired by then. A Class act indeed, did my PPC's a couple years in a row at Provincial.

This industry needs more Jim Gray's. Had a couple of PPC's with him and then worked under him before he retired. Top-notch all the way.
