STARS helicopters coming to Saskatchewan

I'm thinking 20 million a year is a pretty heavy price tag for a 3 helicopter air ambulance service.

139's or 117's?

good deal if it's 24/7 139 coverage?

not so much on a 117

Word is a pair of BK117s with an AW139 coming in 2013 to replace a 117.

20 million a year for 2 helicopters compared to 12 million a year for Helijet in BC to provide 3. Just how big is the Honourarium for the STARS BOD?

I think the package is great with 20 million a year.I wish I could have this kind of package with rescue work has become quite tough in these days.Due to natural catastrophic nature of world's environment the rescue workers have to stay on heels.

Anyone have any info regarding what happened to DGP? Looks like it might have been a mechanical issue but I can't find anything in CADORS. It stopped flying for a month and looks like it's been doing flight tests the last couple of days.
