Denendeh

Denendeh Helicopters

Since 1998 Denendeh Helicopters has brought together in partnership the investment arms of K’atlodeeche First Nation, of the Hay River Reserve, and the Deh Gah Gotie First Nation, of Fort Providence, with minority owner Great Slave Helicopters.

The company’s growth model and reinvestment strategy has allowed them to purchase a total of four helicopters; including the recent purchase of 2 Eurocopter fully refurbished BK117 twin engine intermediate helicopters from New Zealand with Category A performance under the call letters BKD and BKP. Denendeh Helicopters also owns its own Eurocopter AS350 B2 registered under the call letters IUX and a Bell 206 Longranger registered under the call letters SHL. The business is based in Hay River and also operates out of a satellite base Yellowknife.

Denendeh Helicopters has access to all Great Slave Helicopters equipment, pilots and aircraft maintenance engineers on an as needed basis, but unlike most Aboriginal-owned helicopter companies it holds its own operating certificate. As the only Aboriginal-owned and operated helicopter company in the region, Denendeh Helicopters is proud to provide contracted forest fire suppression and support services to the Territorial Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

Denendeh 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, mineral exploration and mining activities and oil and gas exploration in the Cameron Hills area. The partnership is under the leadership of Chief Roy Fabian, Chief  Joachim Bonnetrouge and Director Al Martin, who is also the President of Great Slave Helicopters.
