The CH-124 Sea king first flew into service in 1963, making it one of Canada’s longest serving aircraft, it is about to be replaced by the CH-148 Cyclone. The Sea King is a ship borne helicopter with special tasking’s based on its ability to fit securely on even the smallest of Canada’s warships.
With its capability to fly and operate effectively in day or night, the Sea King has been a huge part of Canada’s naval operations. Some of the major contributions include our Search and Rescue (SAR) operations, disaster relief, counter-narcotics, and assistance in fishery and pollution patrols.
