Vancouver Island Helicopters

Canada's Oldest Privately held Helicopter company

Company started in 1955
by Ted Hensen and Bill Boeing Jr.


C-GOPL, Bell 206, ca 1989
Unknown Location,
but could be Bell Irving, BC Tel Radio site
 


C-GEAT, Bell 205A-1, C/N: 30088, built in 1970
Photo taken fuelling BC Tel site, June 1988
I am taking a guess this was Vancouver Islands machine.
Now based out of Edmonton as a Heliqwest machine.
