Since 2006 Great Slave Helicopters has worked in partnership with the Tlicho people to service the rotary-wing aviation needs of their region jointly. The partnership includes the 52% majority owner Tlicho Investment Corporation and the minority partner Great Slave Helicopters, which conducts all flight operations for the partnership.
With the signing of the comprehensive Tlicho Land Claims and Self Government Agreement, an historic deal negotiated with Canada and the first of its kind in the country. The Agreement cedes control over land access, resources development and self-government to the Tlicho people within their traditional territory.
As such Tlicho Helicopters is uniquely positioned to meet the helicopter service needs of companies and public organizations involved in infrastructure planning and development as well as mineral exploration and mining on the traditional lands of the Tlicho. Its leadership includes Tlicho citizens from Behchoko, Whati, Gameti and Wekweeti as well as representatives of Great Slave Helicopters.Back to our Group of Companies
