YELLOWKNIFE, April. 26, 2010â€”Theyâ€™ve only just begun operations, but Trinity Helicopters is already making a name for itself. RTL Robinson Enterprises Ltd. awarded Trinity the highly competitive contract to shuttle essential goods across the Mackenzie River during breakâ€up.
â€œWe see this as a huge vote of confidence in our company,â€ says Rob Carroll, President and coâ€founder of Trinity Helicopters. â€œEven though Trinity is just getting started, we have a very experienced staff and weâ€™re pleased that RTL Robinson Enterprises has such trust in the abilities of our whole team.â€
Breakâ€up occurs when the ice on the Mackenzie River is too soft for driving and too thick for ferry service. It usually lasts three to four weeks. Trinity will be transporting goods that need to cross the river, including essentials such as medical supplies. To get the job done, Trinity will be using a Bell 205A++1 helicopter in partnership with VIH Helicopters. It is estimated that Trinity will spend up to 90 hours in the air, averaging about 4000lbs per load, as they ensure the delivery of essential goods continues uninterrupted to the residents and businesses north of the Mackenzie.
â€œWe chose Trinity based on its high level of service, competitive pricing and the fact that it is a local northern aboriginal company,” says Larry Wheaton, VP of Operations for RTL Robinson Enterprises Ltd
