GREAT SLAVE HELICOPTERS RETURNS TO ITS NORTHERN ROOTS WITH NEW OWNERSHIP

YELLOWKNIFE, NT 28-Nov. 2018 – On Friday, November 23rd, the Ontario Superior Court approved the sale of Great Slave Helicopters Ltd.

Great Slave Helicopters’ assets were acquired by Pat Campling Jr. who will assume the role of CEO and Accountable Executive with the new company operating under the name Great Slave Helicopters 2018 Ltd.

Campling holds over 38 years’ of aviation experience in Western Canada and the Northwest Territories including 8000 pilot in command hours in fixed wing aircraft.
His management experience includes ownership at Transwest Air overseeing a similar sized company. Campling noted that, “the plan is to operate the company lean and mean in the interim with a refocus on the core business, particularly North of 60.”

Jennifer Burry has taken on the role of Chief Operating Officer. Born and raised in the North, Burry holds over 15 years’ of logistics and operations experience and is thrilled to be carrying on the family legacy in Yellowknife. Burry indicated that “the team is eager to continue offering the same safe and high quality service that our clients have come to know and expect as well as reaffirming our commitment to the longstanding Indigenous relationships.”

As part of the re-structuring process, key positions are moving back to Yellowknife including the training department.

Previous financing reports have been inaccurate. Campling has indicated that his company has financed the purchase internally.
