Film and Tourism

The Yukon provides some of the most unique, breathtaking vistas North America has to offer. Film makers and advertisers have been taking advantage of this beautiful area of the world for decades - and Trans North has been called on, drawing on our local knowledge to help find the perfect location. Our pilots have flown most of the popular aerial camera equipment such as Tyler, Westcam, Panasonic and Gyron camera mounts to name a few.

Trans North does do heli-tour charter flights from any of our Bases. You can design your own route or we can suggest tours for you. Flights are subject to aircraft availability and weather of course. Such flights are on an "as booked" charter basis. We do not operate such tours on a per seat basis. Typically a four passenger Bell Jetranger is the helicopter of choice.


The Trans North team prides itself on our maintenance and support infrastructure. We have the largest helicopter maintenance facility, parts and spares inventory in the Yukon. Trans North is a Bell Certified Customer Service Facility for Bell Helicopter parts sales. Our diverse maintenance department in Whitehorse is set up to be a self contained facility with the ability to provide our own overhauls, non-destructive testing, machining, structures, electrical and general maintenance. We employ a full time roster of maintenance engineering staff with close to a 1 to 1 ratio to helicopters operated. Our objective is to provide the best backup and support possible.
