Dehcho Regional Helicopters

Since 2004 Great Slave Helicopters has worked in partnership with 100% Aboriginal-owned Dehcho Regional Helicopters.

The Dehcho Regional Helicopters ownership group includes the investment arms of Acho Dene Koe First Nation in Fort Liard, Fort Simpson Metis Local 52, Nahanni Butte Dene Band, Sambaa K’e Dene Band in Trout Lake, Jean Marie River First Nation, Liidlii Kue First Nation in Fort Simpson and Pehdzeh Ki First Nation in Wrigley. This represents every Aboriginal group in the Nahendeh portion of the Dehcho Region. Great Slave Helicopters conducts all flight operations for Dehcho Regional Helicopters.

As such Dehcho Regional Helicopters is ideally positioned to meet the helicopter service needs of companies and public organizations involved in infrastructure planning and development, wildlife surveys, search and rescue missions as well as mineral exploration and mining activities on the traditional lands of the Dehcho People. The partnership is under the leadership of President Gladys Norwegian and a distinguished list of Directors from around the region.

Dehcho Regional Helicopters owns its own Eurocopter AS350 B2 registered under the call letters DCV. The business is primarily operated out of two regional bases, one in Fort Liard and the other in Fort Simpson. In 2010 it was recognized as the Business of the Year by the NWT Chamber of Commerce.

As the only Aboriginal-owned helicopter company in the region, Dehcho Regional Helicopters is proud to provide contracted forest fire suppression and support services to the Territorial Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
