About Us

In the spring of 1967 the four founding partners, Gordon Davis, Ron Connelly, Al Kapty & Chuck Hankins established Trans North Turbo Air. Helicopters were the core of the business but the operation of fixed-wing aircraft made up a significant part of the fleet for the first 20 years. Trans North proceeded to establish operational bases in Dawson City, Haines Junction, Watson Lake, Ross River, Carmacks & Mayo.

Jump forward to todays date and Trans North is still building on this legacy with a diverse fleet and top tier maintenance.  Trans North carries a wealth of experience within our flight crew which includes extensive local knowledge, mountain experience, and precision longline skills . Our head office in Whitehorse is one of five strategically located bases to serve you better while minimizing non-productive positioning costs.

Trans North remains a company deeply rooted in the North and aims to continue creating jobs in the Yukon & stimulating the local economy.
