Testimonials

“As a provider of thermal scanning and forest fire specialty services we regularly work under challenging conditions right across the country, where communication is limited and standard flight planning just isn’t an option. By using SkyTrac we can have our main base track our fleet even when conditions and mission change suddenly in the field. With dependable satellite communication our pilots and crew know that important messages will get through the first time.”

- Shane Jordan, Director of Sales and Marketing, Taiga Air Services

“We looked at other systems available and weighted the cost/benefit of each, but what really swayed us towards SkyTrac was a discussion with the maintenance director of one of Canada’s largest helicopter operators and his experience with the system. He stated that the technical support offered by SkyTrac’s in-house engineering team during the integration, as well as during the few operational issues they experienced, made the process a smooth one. To us, a company that stands behind its product after the initial sale is very important.”

- Greg Wolejko, Flight Dispatcher, Nolinor Aviation
