Ryan and Silver King have flown for me on five mineral exploration programs. They are all very professional, safe, and proficient pilots in a very challenging environment.- Wade Barnes, Northgate Minerals / AuRico Gold
Great Canadian Heli-Skiing would like to thank Silver King Helicopters for being such a critical part of our success. From the flight crew to the administrative staff, your team not only provides service with a smile, but more importantly, when faced with problems they go the extra mile. Silver King is so much more than a helicopter supplier, you are a company that has pride in your product, integrity in your communications and most importantly a team to execute at the highest of standards. We look forward to a long future with Silver King Helicopters which can only be truly described as a great partnership.- Maaike and Greg Porter, Great Canadian Heli-Skiing
We have had the privilege of working with Silver King over the past ten years. Ryan was the helicopter pilot moving drill rigs for us at many diverse locations. His performance was exceptional, moving rigs with the utmost efficiency and most importantly, safely.- John Shorter and Paul Nessman, Driftwood Diamond Drilling Ltd.
For ten years we have been working on a transmission line project replacing 60,000 insulators. With helicopters, this work is done under energized conditions and is often stressful. It is very demanding mentally requiring pilots with a very high level of vertical reference skills and proficiency. During this time Ryan and I have worked together. He and the Silver King crew bring a high level of experience in this field and bring great professional attitudes to the worksite. I have worked with many pilots over the years and Ryan Hinds is one of the best pilots in the industry. Where the safety of the crew is involved his ability to easily adapt with changing weather conditions is very important. Ryan is one of the first pilots I would call upon to perform any kind of helicopter work and especially with work that requires a high level of vertical reference.- Trevor James, Allteck Line Contrators Canada
