Erickson Inc. has renewed a long-standing contract for aerial timber harvesting with Vancouver-based Western Forest Products. This is Erickson's second timber-harvesting contract renewal this year. Last month, the company renewed a separate timber harvesting contract with Helifor in Western Canada.
Under the WFP contract, one S-64 Aircrane will fly in western British Columbia on multiple timber sites. In addition to the helicopter, Erickson will supply pilots, maintenance support crews, parts and components. The renewed 12-month contract begins Feb. 1 and is further renewable.
