Airbus Helicopters Canada, based in Fort Erie, ON, celebrated its 35th year in Canada, noting it is now supporting approximately 200 customers operating more than 700 aircraft in the country.

Over the past 35 years, Airbus Helicopters explains it has supported regional and national law enforcement agencies, emergency medical services, utility operators, government and corporate customers to supply, operate and maintain the fleet of Airbus Helicopters aircraft in Canada.

As part of the open house at its Fort Erie, ON, facility on June 1st, Airbus supported local charities Heartland Forest and Wellspring Niagara, both of which had representatives onsite to collect donations.


Airbus Helicopters Canada is well known internationally for the manufacture of composite parts for approximately seven helicopter models.

This key segment runs in a dedicated 50,000 square foot space within the 138,000 square foot Fort Erie facility.

The operation employs more than 240 people, providing engineering, design, tooling and build-to-print services for the industry, in addition to repair & overhaul, flight testing and training solutions for Airbus rotary wing aircraft.
