President's Message

The pressure has been rising on Minister Garneau – pressure from his colleagues inside the Liberal Party; and pressure from the Opposition. Other like-minded aviation associations from across the country and their members have lent their voices to ours.

•    L’ajout de nouvelles limites d’heures de départ et de limites sectorielles pour les durées de travail en vol. Des durées de travail beaucoup plus courtes seront très délétères aux opérations saisonnières dans le Nord canadien pendant les périodes de jours plus longs.
•    Les périodes de travail maximales seraient réduites de 42 à 23 jours, ce qui imposerait des changements d’équipages dans les régions éloignées de deux à trois fois plus souvent.

“The new hard-copy document will help promote the Association’s Operator Members and Associates to their customers, and at the same time help explain a bit about the Association, and what it is we do”, said HAC’s President and CEO, Fred Jones. The document will also present an opportunity for our Members & Associates to advertise their goods and services to their customers. “Over 80% of Canada’s commercial helicopters are operated by HAC members, but there are still some operators who don’t understand what it is we do and the services that we provide.”

« Le nouveau répertoire imprimé aidera à promouvoir les membres exploitants et les associés auprès de leurs clients tout en leur donnant des informations sur notre association et sur ce que nous faisons », a dit Fred Jones, président et chef de la direction de l’ACH. Ce répertoire offrira aussi l’occasion à nos membres et associés de promouvoir leurs services. « Plus de 80 % des hélicoptères commerciaux du Canada sont exploités par des membres de l’ACH, mais il demeure quand même certains exploitants qui ne comprennent pas ce que nous faisons et les services que nous procurons ».
