Cougar Helicopters also has a secondary role in providing Search and Rescue services to offshore operators.

From its base in Newfoundland Cougar operates a fleet of four Sikorsky S-92 aircraft.

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Cougar Helicopters' beginning as an offshore helicopter service provider commenced in Nova Scotia in 1984. Since that time, we have enjoyed a long association with the Nova Scotia offshore oil industry. In July of 2009, we were excited to return to our Nova Scotia roots as the helicopter service provider for the initial stages of the Deep Panuke offshore project.

We are pleased to be a part of the construction phase of this program, bringing employees and equipment safely and efficiently to Deep Panuke's offshore vessel locations. We look forward to the future of Deep Panuke, when in 2010 we begin the long term phase of bringing steady state personnel to the installation at Deep Panuke PFC.

Cougar Helicopters' Halifax Base is currently operating the Sikorsky S-76 and S-92 aircraft, allowing us to transport our offshore personnel safely, swiftly, and comfortably to their offshore locations - hallmarks of our commitment to service.
