Rat Island Eradication Project - Aleutian Islands, AK

In 2008 Pathfinder Aviation was selected as the helicopter vendor to support the largest aerial eradication project in North America. In late September of 2008 our team of four pilots and one mechanic flew two Bell 206LIII aircraft 1300 miles out of the Aleutian chain in some of the harshest weather conditions in the world. We were an integral part in the successful outcome of eradicating Rat Island of the Norway rat. This work was done as a joint venture with Island Conservation Inc., The Nature Conservancy and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
