Canadian Air-Crane Ltd. is Canada’s largest and most diversified heavy-lift helicopter operator. With lift capacity of 25,000 lbs. and precision placement capability, its aircranes leased from Erickson Air-Crane Inc. are ideally suited for precision heavy-lifting within the heli-logging, oil and gas, construction, mining and fire suppression industries.
Canadian Air-Crane’s S-64E and S-64F aircranes use a patented antirotation handling system that keeps drill rigs, platforms, pipeline equipment and other heavy equipment from rotating and an aft facing pilot station for precision placing. To assist in fire suppression, Canadian Air-Crane employs an Erickson S-64 Aircrane Helitanker for high volume, precision delivery of water, Class A foam and retardant.
For 25 years, Canadian Air-Crane has excelled at providing heavy-lift services to British Columbia’s logging industry. During this time, Canadian Air-Crane pioneered and perfected the stem and buncher harvesting process, establishing it as a leading innovator in the heli-logging industry.
Canadian Air-Crane has conducted successful operations in the Pacific Northwest, Canada, and in the tropical forests of Malaysia and Indonesia. To best serve its clients located around the world, Canadian Air-Crane provides on-time reliability, outstanding operational availability and maintains bases in Malaysia, Canada, Europe, Peru, and the United States.
