“The selection of the AS350B3e for Slave Lake’s operations was easy; the new helicopter fits well with our expansion plans because it gives us the ability to work effectively in mountainous regions and over larger territories” said Mr. George Kelham, owner of Slave Lake Helicopters. “Our customers rely on us to fly the latest in new technology aircraft”.

The AS350B3e was launched at Heli-Expo 2011.
