How to Make Crew Changes in Edmonton and Calgary a Breeze

Getting workers to and from remote areas for crew changes can be a lengthy, costly and risky venture. But if you’re managing a camp in the gas, oil, mining, forestry or other sector, overseeing shift changes is a responsibility that comes with the job. Commercial flights are unpredictable and ground travel is hazardous in the winter months. You never know when delays will set back your bottom line or your schedule. If there were a way to make it easier and faster, wouldn’t you want in? Consider this your personal invite.

Beating winter weather

When weather conditions take a turn for the worse, our dependable twin-engine aircraft can ensure your crew arrives safely onsite. Of course, we won’t take off if safety is an issue, but unlike commercial airlines, if another flight route can be arranged, we have the flexibility to make adjustments.

Driving your crew out can present its own set of challenges. When workers travel by road from Edmonton or Calgary, black ice, reduced visibility and possible mechanical failures can be extremely hazardous, especially in remote areas. And if a blizzard blows in, the journeys progress may get slowed or interrupted all together. Doing your crew change with Airco is quicker, safer and all around smarter.

Our group charter flights to and from Calgary and Edmonton are an easy, pleasant way for your crew to travel. They can walk directly onboard the aircraft from the airstrip, and be up in the air in a matter of minutes.
