Our History, Attributes, Development & Activity Sectors



Co-President Frederic Carrier and business partner Richard Lafrance established Helicarrier Inc. in the spring of 2010. What started from just an idea a few years previous, developed into a competitive organization on a steady growth plan since its first Eurocopter AS350 B3. Each year since its commencement, Helicarrier has added an additional aircraft to its fleet.  When the opportunity presented itself to join the Heavy Lift market, Helicarrier turned to the Sikorsky S61N, due to the fact of the companies previous experience to the airframe. Furthermore, in order to diversify into the Heavy Lift market, the Airbus 332L1 (Super Puma) was the next addition to the fleet to set ourselves apart from the competition. Helicarrier's current fleet consists of 4 AS350 B3's, 2 S61N's, and 2 Airbus 332L1's (Super Puma).

"Our Airbus AS350 B3’s are the backbone of our fleet, their lifting capabilities and low operating costs are what set them apart in this industry, we believe in utilizing a platform that can outperform even those aircrafts in the medium classification. 

We brought on the initial Sikorsky S61 as our heavy lift aircraft because it is an aircraft that has been tried and tested in some of the most remote and harsh environments.  It's a workhorse that helps diversify our fleet but also dovetails nicely into our commitment to our customers in this ever-changing market. "
