Overview

The Canadian Air Force’s only dedicated search and rescue (SAR) helicopter, the rugged CH-149 Cormorant can operate in even the most severe conditions, making it ideal for Canada’s challenging geography and climate. Whether coming to the aid of a ship’s crew, an injured mountain climber or a lost hiker, the Cormorant gets the job done.

 

Powered by three engines, the CH-149 Cormorant has exceptional long-range capability-it can fly for over 1000 km without refuelling. With its ample cargo space and rear-ramp access, the helicopter can carry up to 12 stretchers or a load of 5000 kg.

 

Because of its shaped rotor blades-strengthened by titanium strips along the leading edge-the CH-149 has superior lift and flight speed, and significantly less vibration than many other helicopters. This advanced system allows the Cormorant to start and stop rotors in very windy conditions-over 50 knots-and also helps provide a stable hover for critical hoisting operations.

 

Equipped with a full ice protection system, the Cormorant routinely conducts rescues that would have been impossible for its predecessor, the CH-113 Labrador.
