Delta Helicopters is a privately-owned family business located in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada.

Operating with a fleet of 21 helicopters, 6 bases, and 50 employees, Delta Helicopters has been providing helicopter services in Northern Alberta and across Canada since 1972.

Our experience, combined with a network of hanger facilities across Alberta, provide the foundation to complete projects in a safe, on time, and on budget schedule.

We service the following areas:


Our bases at High Level, Rainbow Lake, Slave Lake, Fort McMurray and Lac La Biche remain very active due in part to their key locations in the Oil and Gas Industry.

We move men and equipment, supply aircraft for ambulance stand-by and evacuation, and our infrared scanning is used for pipeline/ power line inspections.

We do wire line moves, well abandonments, aerial seeding, surveying, water surveys, game counts and anything else that can be accomplished by helicopter.


Delta has over 45 years of experience working with the forestry industry across Canada. We pride ourselves in our dependability and in the men and women who complete the job. Delta’s diverse fleet offers a helicopter for any size job.

For Fire Suppression we have a full complement of sling gear; long lines, nets, drip torches, water buckets (Bambi buckets), infrared and video scanning equipment. Delta is active in all aspects of the forestry industry. We have the experience and the equipment needed to do aerial seeding, tree planting, regeneration surveys and water surveys. In short, we do it all

Thermal Imaging

The Flir Ultra 7500 Thermal Imaging System is a high-resolution infrared imaging system and a CCD color video camera co-mounted on a gimbaled platform. In order to operate the Flir 7500, it is mounted on a Bell 206.


Delta operates a variety of aircraft that can be used for emergency and ambulance related flights. The Bell 206 and Eurocopter AS350BA have the ability to carry one stretcher internally and because of heated hanger facilities, can be airborne in a matter of minutes to assist in the event of an emergency year-round.

Stretcher equipped aircraft can also be put on stand-by in remote locations if required.


Need a gift for someone who is hard to buy for? Why not purchase a flight in a Bell 206 (4 passengers).

Check out the local landscape, take pictures, enjoy a new experience.


Delta has expertise in the mining field, we have the equipment and the personel to do the job. Should your needs be a Bell helicopter or an AStar, we can supply whatever helicopter you need to do the job cost effectively, efficiently, and safely.

Remote Helicopters

Remote Helicopters provides professional helicopter support all year round. Evolving and growing with "the industry", we go to great lengths to work with you and understand your individual business needs – in the air and on the ground.

Like you, what we do does not define us. How we do it, does. Supplying the best possible service to our valued customers is how we do business.

Our main base is located near the largest lake in Alberta: Lesser Slave Lake.

The services we provide are:

Petroleum & Gas

  • Surveying;
  • Seismic;
  • Seeding & reclamation;
  • Construction & lease sites;
  • Well abandonments;
  • Transporting crews & equipment;
  • Aerial G.P.S. mapping;
  • Lifting / slinging of vessels into remote areas;
  • Specialized long lines & lifts;
  • Pipeline patrols & surveillance; and
  • Highly advanced laser gas detection.

Boreal Laser Gas Detection

Aerial corridor surveys are now the preferred method for periodic and diligent inspections of pipelines and utilities transmissions lines. Remote Helicopters has the necessary tools to get the job done.

Natural gas pipeline owners require improved routine monitoring of pipelines for safety, economic, environmental and regulatory reasons. Leaking natural gas can cause explosions leading to the loss of life and property. Loss of products through undetected leaks dramatically reduces a pipeline operator's profitability.

The laser GasFinder is mounted on the belly of a helicopter. The measurement probe for airborne surveys has an effective path length of 2 meters. The laser probe provides continuous calibration updates. While measuring and referencing, signals are constantly compared to determine the actual concentration of gas in the probe. It is an extremely effective tool in the detection of methane. Each data point taken at 1 second intervals has an associated methane level and GPS location that can be reviewed at any time during or after the flight.

All the information gathered from the GasFinder, including GPS data is automatically recorded and stored during the flight and can be looked at in detail while the flight is taking place, or after the flight. The parameters of what is an acceptable level of methane can be adjusted at any time so that the natural levels of methane (normally green) can be differentiated from suspected leaks (yellow or red).

The laser GasFinder is capable of detecting low levels of methane from long distances even under moderate wind conditions of up to approximately 10-15 knots (18-25km/h). When winds reach about 15 knots (25km/h), results cannot be guaranteed and cannot be used at all above 20 knots (35km/h) due to the manner in which the gas will dissipate rapidly and become undetectable.

FLIR Cameras/Gas Detection


The FLIR Ultra 7000 is a Gyro Stabilized camera that is mounted to the Bell 206 or AS 350 and is controlled by a technician inside the helicopter. There is both color and infrared video being streamed to a digital video recorder, which have GPS coordinates attached to the video for viewing at the customers convenience. The color video can be used for inspection of right of way (ROW) anomalies. In addition to being used for pipeline inspections the FLIR 7000 is used on forestry operations for hotspot inspections and Search and Rescue operations.


The FLIR 8000e is a Gyro Stabilized camera that is mounted to the Bell 206 or AS 350 and is controlled by a technician inside the helicopter. The system combines color video with FLIR’s GasFindIR™ technology to allow you to detect fugitive Alkane and Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) gases from the air. Many industrial gases and chemical compounds are invisible to the naked eye, but with its specialized sensor, the U8000e displays these fugitive gases as black fumes.


Since 2003 Star Helicopters Ltd. has been using the Boreal Laser Gas Finder with excellent results for our clients. In 2009 we added the FLIR Ultra 7000 camera to our service, which is capable of recording color and infrared video simultaneously. In 2013 we added a FLIR 8000 e. Over the years we have completed thousands of kilometres of pipelines for our clients with great success. The exact route is flown by pipeline GIS data loaded into the pilots GPS. By combining these 2 technologies we can provide clients a product with high end results. These services also can be supplied separately with either the GasFinder or FLIR camera on its own.


The Boreal Gasfinder is mounted on the belly of the Bell 206 or AS 350. As the helicopter flies, the Gasfinder samples 3 times per second and records the levels of methane in the air, as low as 1 PPM, which is sent to a computer along with GPS coordinates. If increased levels are detected, an audible alarm sounds notifying the pilot and technician.


The entire route is recorded for our clients and can be viewed through a GIS viewing program that we supply on a hard drive. The GIS viewing program will show you a bread crumb trail with a moving map and video that you can switch from either infrared or color. In addition, we also supply the GasFinder data on an additional viewing program for the client to review without the video.
