    Vertical Horizons : The History of Okanagan Helicopters

    Vertical Horizons : The History of Okanagan HelicoptersCategory: Helicopter HistoryThe swashbuckling story of Canada's legendary pioneer helicopter company. In 1945, following years as an instructor, Carl Agar was honourably discharged from the British and Commonwealth Air Training Plan and moved to Penticton where he began looking for flying opportunities. A first attempt to start a flying club never took off but Agar and his partners Barney Bent and Alf Stringer were determined to get off the ground. They began looking at commercial ventures and in 1947 Okanagan Air Services (OAS) was formed to provide instruction and contract work. After a rough start--while demonstrating fruit spraying, Agar crashed a helicopter into power lines--the company got a break in May 1948 when the Fraser floods swamped the valley and OAS received a mosquito-spraying contract. From there the company flourished, going on to fly the first unaccompanied commercial helicopter ferry flight from Canada to the UK, monitor polar bears in the High Arctic, provide offshore oil rig support during monsoons, and, at the company's high point, operate in over 33 countries with 600 employees and 126 helicopters. Back home, Agar opened the Mountain Flying School in Penticton, which is still in operation today and has trained thousands of civilian and military pilots from all over the world. Vertical Horizons is also the story of the employees who were pivotal to the success of the company. Individuals' experiences range from tragic to humorous and include a UFO sighting in the Arctic, witnessing the Jonestown massacre and a rescue of Vietnamese refugees off the coast of Thailand. Featuring first-hand accounts, extensive research and a multitude of photographs, Vertical Horizons is the first-ever history of the company that pioneered flying high-mountain terrain--making it a must-read for any aviation buff.

Marine Observation Squadron 6 distinguished itself throughout a period which spanned nearly five decades and three major conflicts, but its most significant contribution to Marine aviation was its pioneering use of helicopters in combat. Lieutenant Colonel Gary W. Parker and Major Frank M. Batha, Jr., are co-authors of this history. Lieutenant Colonel Parker, who holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Baltimore and a master of arts degree from Pepperdine University, prepared the first draft of the manuscript. Major Batha, who has a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Utah and a master of arts degree from the University of West Florida, prepared the comment edition and final draft. Both officers axe experienced helicopter pilots who served combat tours in Vietnam. It is our hope that this history will be read as a tribute to the men who have contributed to the accomplishments of the squadron.This history is written to provide a concise operational narrative about a distinguished Marine Corps unit. Marine Observation Squadron 6s wide variety of experiences closely parallels the larger story of Marine aviation. From the 1920s through the Vietnam era, VMO-6 provided the kind of outstanding air support Marines have come to expect.

    Helicopter History

    Helicopters were developed and built during the first half-century of flight, with the Focke-Wulf Fw 61 being the first operational helicopter in 1936.
