Low-level helicopter flights to occasionally occur over the District until November 1

Sep 26, 2022

If you see a large helicopter flying low over West Vancouver occasionally between now and November 1, there is no cause for alarm.

Talon Helicopters will be performing low level flying around the Ambleside and Dundarave neighbourhoods to assist Fortis BC with routine inspections of their natural gas transmission lines.

Fortis BC will be conducting these aerial inspections across Metro Vancouver this fall. Flight time over a single area will be minimal and your patience is appreciated. 

The flights will be during daylight hours and will adhere to all flight paths and times set out by Transport Canada, the governing body which approved these flights.
