Sikorsky S76B

Anyone know of any companies in Canada that operate a B model? A surprise to me was the B model does not hold a Canadian Type Certificate. Comments?

How can you tell which one is the pilot when you walk into a bar?....Don't worry he will come up and tell you.

that new D looks pretty swanky.......it'll show up in Canada once the T model comes out and the D is totally obsolete;)

Do you know who runs the C+ in Canada altiplano?? too lazy to search :P

Answering my own question here. After talking to a rep from Sikorsky apparently there were no Canadian operators interested in the B model when it was produced so they decided against filing the paper work to have it certifed in Canada. On a side note, the machine has loads of power but the C of G envelope is very small and the aircraft has a tendancy to be tail heavy. I guess a common theme is the baggage compartments in B models are immaculate. As they never get used!!
