Great Slave Helicopters (GSH) is proud to announce that it has earned certification to carry hazardous materials by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). The permit authorizes transportation of certain hazardous materials by Rotorcraft External Load Operations, either attached to or suspended from an aircraft without being subject to certain hazard communication requirements, quantity limitations, packaging and loading and storage requirements. GSH is the first non-US helicopter operator to meet the strict standards of the PHMSA. GSH intends to utilize this certification not only for its current customers in the US, but to seek new opportunities that require the transportation of hazardous materials.
