Established in 1976 by Barry Pruss, East West Helicopter became a forerunner in the acquisition and sales of turbine helicopters. Strong core values, including honesty, integrity and diligence coupled with extensive knowledge and expertise allowed for handshake deals and built a highly respected company with an extensive international presence.
New ownership and management in 2001 mirrored the core values and expertise which the company was founded on. A new direction brought forth extensive changes, including updated technology to better support all aspects of the helicopter industry, including the opportunity to diversify with a network of associates that provide leasing, heavy maintenance and major modifications. This enables East West to provide a seamless turnkey transaction for our clientele.
Since 2001, Mr. Patric Wells, President and CEO, has been privileged to have travelled to all corners of the world conducting business which has resulted in many repeat customers and gaining long –term relationships. Mr. Wells’ wide range of expertise in aviation has placed him in the unique position of often being mistaken as a chief pilot, director of maintenance or as a general line mechanic. His roots in aviation began early due to his Mothers career as a stewardess employed on trans-continental routes. He started flying at the age of seventeen and achieved his 100 hour rotor wing status at eighteen. In the continuation of what would be a lifelong passion he earned his aircraft maintenance license then went onto extensive field experience as a bush pilot/engineer in remote Northern Canadian operations. This combined experience provided the foundation to an executive position at a major helicopter manufacturer, culminating in the idea to create a new innovative company for the helicopter industry. Consequently, in 1996 Panterra Heli Support Ltd. was founded, and the acquisition of East West Helicopter was a logical continuation of Mr. Wells’ vision of a globally integrated infrastructure
