Erickson Inc. has renewed a contract with Canadian aerial heavy lift company Helifor Canada, a subsidiary of Columbia Helicopters, to continue providing aerial timber harvesting services in British Columbia and western Canada.

The contract is the fifth renewal with Helifor and provides for year-round services with one Erickson S64 Aircrane until December 31, 2016. This renewal has an increased scope of work with the customer option to add an additional Aircrane. Erickson will also provide pilots, full field maintenance support crews, parts, and components.

“Erickson has operated in Canada for more than 30 years,” said Andy Mills, Erickson’s vice president of commercial aviation services. “Aerial timber harvesting is where we began as a company, and we are pleased to continue that tradition with Helifor.”

Canada is Erickson’s longest-standing international market. The company also has a proven track record of providing aerial timber harvesting services in environmentally sensitive areas throughout the world.
