“The AS350 B2’s are a favorite of our clients and we needed to increase our capacity to satisfy the demand for this aircraft”, sited Paul Spring, president and CEO of Phoenix Heli-Flight.

The new AS350 B2’s are a welcome addition to the current Phoenix fleet which includes; 2 EC120 B’s, a EC130 B4, AS350 B2, AS350 B3, AS355 N and a AS355 NP.

Spring continued “The main driver for the EC135 acquisition was the performance of the aircraft and the outstanding safety features. This helicopter is the reference machine for EMS operations”. The aircraft will be a dedicated Emergency Response Helicopter, serving the North East Region of Alberta. The aircraft is backed by funding from the Alberta energy industry and we are extremely pleased by the show of support.”

Phoenix Heli-Flight has become the first Canadian company to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the Eurocopter Ec145 T2 helicopter.
