Phoenix Heli-Flight is a charter helicopter company that has been operating from its main base and headquarters at the Fort McMurray airport for nearly 30 years. We are a Canada-wide industry leader concentrated on providing the safest and most modern types and models of aircraft possible.
Since starting business in 1991 with one helicopter and one owner/pilot/maintenance engineer, Paul Spring has grown the fleet to ten Airbus helicopters, including both single and twin turbine engine light models. Phoenix Heli-Flight prides itself on offering our clients low-time aircraft equipped with leading-edge technology. Our level of operational professionalism and aircraft quality far exceed current industry practices and standards found within the helicopter charter industry.
Phoenix Heli-Flight provides a wide variety of services including exploration, wildlife surveys, utilities, oil and gas, forestry, construction, infrastructure maintenance, corporate transport, sightseeing, general transportation of personnel and freight and wildfire suppression. Through the Local HERO Foundation Phoenix also provides Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) to Fort McMurray and the Wood Buffalo area with a 24/7 dedicated EC135 medevac helicopter. This helicopter is fitted with a custom air ambulance interior and is night vision goggle (NVG) equipped.
Phoenix Heli-Flight operates from a well appointed facility at the Fort McMurray Airport that is capable of housing all of its aircraft simultaneously. Our facility includes an operations hangar with offices and customer reception area and a maintenance hangar with areas for parts storage, shipping and receiving, training classes and maintenance tasks.
