Talon Helicopters will be performing low level flying with LaSen Inc. for FortisBC between July 11, 2022 and August 31, 2022 during daylight hours, per Special Authorization issued by Transport Canada.
The work is FortisBC’s annual inspection of its high-pressure natural gas lines. The aim is to detect small issues so they can prevent larger problems and make sure its system continues to operate safely.
There are 23 regional districts in BC that the flight will pass through, so the flight time over a single area will be minimal. There will be no activity on the ground related to this flight. The affected areas include District of Squamish and the Municipality of Whistler.
