Bell 206 Long-ranger Helicopter



The small-scale survey uses a Bell 206 long ranger (L/R) helicopter. It’s a small-medium sized aircraft that’s perfect for hauling our people and equipment to potentially rough sea ice conditions near our desired station positions.

In 2003 and 2004, we used Universal Helicopters of Newfoundland, which is based in Goose Bay, Labrador, Canada. Our very capable pilot was John Innis.
