Forest H125 continues operator's close ties with Airbus
Forest Helicopters, which serves northwestern Ontario, has added an H125, which it will use for aerial construction, powerline maintenance and firefighting. The aircraft joins five rotorcraft from the same family.
Forest is very much accustomed to flying the H125.

Forest Helicopters has taken delivery of an H125 helicopter from Airbus Helicopters Canada. This is the second H125 in Forest's fleet, which also includes five other helicopters from the H125 family. The new aircraft's missions will include aerial construction, powerline maintenance and fire suppression.

Established in 1997, Forest Helicopters has primarily served the needs of customers in northwestern Ontario, and has operated in other provinces and territories of Canada supporting various missions.

“We provide a quality competitive service that stresses dependability, competence and safety,” says company president Bart Stevenson. “The acquisition of our H125 helicopters reinforces our commitment to these values.”

More than 1,400 H125s are currently in service worldwide and are used in a variety of missions. In addition to its power and versatility, the H125 is known for advanced safety features and low maintenance costs. It features dual hydraulics, dual channel engine FADEC, a crash-resistant fuel system and glass-panel cockpit displays that reduce pilot workload.

“The H125 is truly a multi-mission aircraft that has earned its reputation for excellent performance, versatility and low maintenance costs,” says Dwayne Charette, president of Airbus Helicopters Canada. “We are proud that Forest Helicopters continues to turn to Airbus to support its missions, and we look forward to our continued partnership.”

Airbus has been a member of Canada's aerospace community since 1984 and is a leading supplier of helicopters in the country. Airbus Helicopters Canada has a 24/7 coast to coast network in place to support an in-service fleet of more than 760 helicopters nationwide. Across all its divisions, Helicopters, Commercial Aircraft, and Defence and Space, Airbus currently employs close to 4,000 people in Canada.
