Transwest Air's Operations Department is headquartered in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, but we have pilots based in Uranium City, Fond du Lac, Stony Rapids, Wollaston Lake, La Ronge, Prince Albert and Saskatoon. The Director of Flight Operations and the Chief Pilot are based in Saskatoon.
Transwest Air's fleet consists of a wide variety of aircraft, from Cessna 185's to Jetstreams and Saab 340's. Our Helicopter fleet consists of three Bell 206 JetRangers and one Bell 206 Longranger. Due to the nature of our operations, we hire some pilots on a contract basis for the spring and summer seasons.
We ask that flight crew typically have, as a minimum, a Commercial Pilot's license with Multi/IFR ratings. Other desirable ratings or experience are:
•bush flying experience
•fire fighting experience
Remuneration depends on the amount of flying done, as well as experience, time on type, and time with the company.
