Last Minute Charter Flights


last minute charter flights
    charter flights
  • A flight by an aircraft chartered for a specific trip, not part of an airline's regular schedule
  • (Charter flight) flights organized directly from the departure location to the destination without any intermediate  stops, usually these flights don't operate on a previously fixed schedule and have less room inside for passengers
  • A charter airline, also sometimes referred to as an air taxi, operates aircraft on a charter basis, that is flights that take place outside normal schedules, by a hiring arrangement with a particular customer.

Patient is Transported
Patient is Transported
Cerise Creek cabin in the Joffre group. The red helicopter was used for HETS and the white one for patient transport. A Perfect Fit Last Thursday a woman was plucked from the top of Place Creek Falls up near Birken by a helicopter using a longline system. The woman had hurt her ankle, probably broken it, and with the number of people available on scene and the terrain as difficult as it was, a ground evacuation would have taken a long, long time to perform. Thus the decision was made to longline her out and shortly thereafter Blackcomb Helicopters and the Blackcomb ski patrol arrived, landed in a flat area near the scene and put the HFRS (helicopter flight rescue system) together. Longline pretty well describes it; an attendant is dangled beneath the helicopter on a long rope. The pilot has to pick the attendant up and then deposit him gently on the hillside, cliff, or wherever...The subject is then clipped to the attendant (often the subject is placed in a kind of big diaper-vest with the unfortunate name of screamer suit) and both are lifted off the ground and flown to safety. It takes some smooth flying. On Thursday the system worked flawlessly (these people are very professional) and instead of it taking six or seven hours (with many painful thumps and bumps) to evacuate the woman, it took maybe two minutes. The helicopter could easily be the official bird of Whistler. daVinci might have had BC in mind when he dreamt of his helicopters -they're a perfect fit. Most people that live in this valley are so used to hearing them cruising by overhead that they have stopped looking up. Remarkably, the history of the helicopter in BC is a very short one. Despite that, pioneer helicopter pilots in BC developed many of the mountain flying techniques that are now in use around the world. Back in 1946 a couple of ex-RCAF fliers named Carl Agar and Barney Bent were killing time sitting in a Penticton coffee shop reading magazines. They stumbled upon an article about a company down in Yakima Washington that had begun spraying fruit trees from a helicopter. Alf Stringer, another ex-RCAF flier remembers, "We were thinking of equipping one of our Tiger Moths to do spraying. So we thought, well, since we didn't know anything about spraying, we might as well start out with two unknowns. If we could get some people interested in helicopters..." The three partners went down to Yakima and went for a ride in an open cockpit Bell 47-B3. They returned convinced that helicopters would be the perfect platform from which to spray fruit trees. They were very maneuverable, they could travel much slower than any fixed wing aircraft, and the downdraft from the rotor would force the spray down into the trees. They were wrong. Using helicopters as a spraying platform never really took off but the three men were able to find other things for helicopters to do. The company they formed was originally called Okanagan Air Services Ltd. Their first helicopter was a Bell 47-B3 just like the one they had flown in Yakima. It cost $35,000, money the three had trouble raising. The machine was powered by a 178 horsepower Franklin engine. It had to be taken apart every twenty-five hours and greased. The transmission also had to be taken apart and have the bearings replaced every twenty-five hours. It took them less than a month to fly the machine into some power lines and while no one was hurt, the helicopter was out of commission. They leased another to finish their first spraying job. Okanagan grew to become on of the major players in the helicopter business and along the way its crews developed many of the mountain flying techniques pilots still rely on. Their distinctive bright orange baseball hats are highly collectible. The first helicopter rescue in BC occurred in October of 1947. An employee of the Greater Vancouver Water Board shattered his foot while working up in the Rodgers Lake area of the North Shore. A North Vancouver doctor hiked up to the site. It took him five hours and when the doctor had assessed the patient he recommended immediate evacuation. They attempted to use a Tiger Moth from Charter Flight Services but the terrain and cloud cover in the area rendered the little plane useless.. A guy named Jim Sampson of Aero Surveys Ltd was working in the area. He flew his Bell 47-B3 to the area and landed on a sand bar. The injured man was loaded into the two-seater and flown into North Vancouver. Since that first rescue flight helicopters have been flown literally thousands of mercy missions in BC. Last Thursdays was just one of hundreds that will be performed this year alone and while it's possible to say the helicopter is routinely used in rescue missions, these missions are never routine . 30 Much more about the history of helicopters in BC can be learned from Helicopters: The British Columbia Story b

Going river searching We were looking for a kayaker who went missing the day before - luckily he wasn't where we were looking!
