Niagara Helicopters is the 2018 recipient of Airbus Helicopters Canada’s Innovation in Safety Award. Flying close to 100,000 passengers annually, as part of the company's more than 2,800 flight hours accumulated per year, Niagara Helicopters primarily provides charter flights and also works with local authorities in search and rescue efforts.
Airbus notes Niagara Helicopters' continuous focus on safety throughout its 50 years of operation, including being one of Canada’s first operators to voluntarily implement Safety Management Systems.
“Safety is fundamental to our industry and this award recognizes the sometimes overlooked measures taken every day to ensure safe operation,” said Romain Trapp, president of Airbus Helicopters Canada and COO of Airbus Helicopters North America. “Niagara Helicopters has truly cemented its position as an industry leader in service and safety, and we are glad to honour them with this well-deserved award.”
Airbus Helicopters Canada’s Innovation in Safety Award is presented yearly to an individual or organization whose business initiatives have demonstrated a great impact on the overall goal of safe flying operations. The winner receives a $10,000 prize.
“This recognition from Airbus on our commitment to safety is a true honour,” said Anna Pierce, VP and GM, Niagara Helicopters. “This award belongs to the whole team at Niagara Helicopters who are diligently devoted to safety in all our operations. Every day, we put the safety of our crew, customers and communities above all else.”
