Blackcomb Helicopters (Blackcomb) is expanding to Alberta with the purchase of Elbow River Helicopters (Elbow River), a long standing helicopter operator based at Springbank Airport near Calgary, Alberta.

Combining the two companies adds two additional 212 machines and a 206L to the Blackcomb fleet, including a 212 HLP BLR DF engine machine, increasing Blackcomb’s ability to serve the Company’s growing utility operation customers in Alberta and in Southeast British Columbia.

Elbow River Founder and Owner Bruce Holloway added: “This acquisition fits our belief that the aviation industry requires consolidation in order to remain competitive. I’m very proud of the company we have built with our dedicated aviation professionals and team at Elbow River. We have worked hard to stay focused on our skills and serving our customers of Southern Alberta and Southeastern British Columbia. Blackcomb has been great to deal with and will enhance and provide additional depth with additional aircraft and personnel at the Springbank base. I am extremely pleased that our aviation professionals who have been like family to us, have the Blackcomb Helicopters and McLean Group Family to support them on their continuing journey.”
