Ascent Helicopters will expand its fleet with a new Airbus HelicoptersH125, announced at this year’s Heli-Expo trade show at the Anaheim Convention Center. Known as a multi-mission workhorse, the H125 will support power line and hydro utility work, as well as forestry and firefighting missions. This will mark the third H125 Ascent has acquired from Airbus in the past four years. The new H125 will be delivered mission ready from the Airbus facility in Fort Erie Ontario in late spring 2020. Headquartered in Western Canada, Ascent Helicopters offers specialized flight services to a variety of government and industry clients, including utilities, construction, film and television, fire suppression, air ambulance, heli-skiing and natural resources. Ascent’s U.S. partner is Heli-1, a Reno-based Part 133 & Part 135 operator. Heli-1 will use the H125 to support its growing operations in the powerline sector.
