Funding problems threaten to ground night helicopter ambulance
from 580 CFRA
A funding shortfall threatens to ground night-time helicopter ambulance service in Alberta's bustling oil sands region. Phoenix Heli-Flight said it plans to discontinue night flights out of Fort McMurray to remote accident sites at the end of the month. "If there is no funding in place, the company can't afford to keep it," chief pilot Darrel Peters said.
