CPS coordinates aircraft support ranging from military “heavy-lift” airplanes to commercial helicopters and small bush planes. We also provide trucks, snowmachines, all-terrain vehicles and boats. In addition to moving personnel, CPS can transport cargo to and from virtually any field location.

As a precaution, researchers using CPS-chartered aircraft must have emergency survival gear and a satellite phone. Researchers can carry their own equipment, or CPS can provide these items. Your project manager will work with you to ensure you have what you need.
