Aviation company links up with northwestern B.C. First Nation

Summit Aviation and Haisla First Nation form partnership

A CONSTRUCTION company already in partnership with the Haisla First Nation is expanding that relationship.

Ledcor Industries announced today that its Summit Aviation Group subsidiary and the Haisla have formed Summit Kitimaat Aviation Limited Partnership to provide aviation services within the Haisla Traditional Territory near Kitimat, British Columbia.

Summit, which flies helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, set up a base at the Northwest Regional Airport in Terrace last year in response to the growing demand for air services tied to work being done on potential natural gas pipelines, liquefied natural gas plants and other projects.

“We are honoured to be selected as their partner and look forward to helping foster economic development within the Haisla Nation,” stated Summit President Rob Mauracher.

Summit operates a fleet of helicopters and fixed wing aircraft based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories in addition to its equipment in Terrace.

The company has 28 aircraft altogether.

“We are extremely proud of this new partnership in the aviation space, and see a great future with Summit and its senior leadership team in the Kitimat region,” commented Henry Amos, Chairman of the Haisla Economic Development Committee.

“This aviation deal extends an already well-functioning partnership Ledcor has with the Haisla and we look forward to growing together,” added Paul McElligott, President of Ledcor Resources and Transportation, Summit’s parent company.
