As a small regional hospital - part of the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority - Powell River General Hospital is limited in the types of services it can provide. In those cases where extra care is required the patient can be flown either by helicopter or a fixed-wing aircraft to a different hospital, usually in Vancouver.
Pictured is a Sikorsky S-76A, owned and operated by Helijet, going to and from the helipad at the hospital. It is one of 2 Sikorsky S-76A's, a Learjet, and 5 Beechcraft B300's that form the BC Air Ambulance fleet.
This aircraft is also featured today in my other blog, Fly By, pictures of
airplanes "flying by" my home in Westview.
