The #1 choice for helicopter charters & utility services in Atlantic Canada


Over twenty years of combined piloting experience, many of which served in the Royal Canadian Air Force


Breton Air proudly supports a fleet of three: two helicopters & one luxury passenger van.


We've flown over 125,000 chartered kilometers (over 77,750 miles) since incorporating Breton Air in 2019.


In 2019, Royal Canadian Air Force Officer Matt Wallace realized the need for a safe, executive, high performance helicopter service for travellers who had their sights on the Atlantic Canadian provinces for adventure, relaxation and all that comes with it. Shortly after, Breton Air was born.

Based out of J.A. Douglas McCurdy Airport in Sydney, Cape Breton: Breton Air's charter services are offered in concert with Gateway Sydney’s FBO (fixed-based operator), executive lounge, and Maritime Air Charter’s fixed-wing extended reach. Conveniently located for all this island has to offer, including 3 of the top 10 Canadian golf courses, Breton Air is your link to the Links.

Our top-Class Fleet

Explore our two top-class helicopters and convenient Ford Transit passenger van.
Bell 206 L4

The Bell 206L-4 single-engine helicopter is optimized for VIP transportation. The L-4 is a proven passenger charter and utility helicopter with an excellent safety record. It bests the LR with more lifting capacity for utility missions and is equipped with emergency floatation devices to carry out short over-water charters to get you where you need to comfortably.

Bell 407 - VVIP Interior

This meticulous Bell 407 with VVIP interior has been completely overhauled in 2022. This aircraft boasts incredible speed with a cruise speed of 125-130 Kts. Smooth and powerful, we are proud to offer the only commercial Bell 407 in the Maritime Provinces.

Ford Transit Passenger Van

In case of fog or inclement weather that may preclude helicopter transfers, Breton Air now has in house commercial van transfer services to accommodate our client's needs when required. The van also provides clients with the option to travel by helicopter one-way and return one-way via transit van if requested.

OUR Background

Breton Air relies on a robust network of highly qualified ex-RCAF pilots and technicians to provide safe, effective and reliable services to every client of Breton Air. Whether conducting utility lift operations, long-range over-water excursions or VIP transportation in the region, Breton Air’s pilots will have RCAF wings on their chest and a career of experience from flying in harsh environments all over the world. This approach of hiring such well-trained pilots and technicians will be the backbone of safely conducting flight operations.

OUR President & CEO

Matt Originally hailing from Cape Breton, pursued his passion for aviation and graduated from the Royal Military College of Canada with a BSc in 2009. Thereafter he earned his RCAF pilot wings and was posted to fly the CH-124 Sea King helicopters. He flew the Sea King as a crew commander off of Navy destroyers and frigates across the globe. These tours included a Black Sea deployment in support of the Ukraine crisis and multiple deployments to the Eastern Mediterranean.

President & Chief Pilot

The trusted Helicopter Service provider for industry leaders

Matt and his helicopter service was outstanding. Went to Nova Scotia for a golf trip with my dad, brother, and best friend... and flew a couple of different days to various resorts. Matt's communication was excellent and [he] was a safe and expert pilot. We'll be back!!

These guys are true professionals and I highly recommend their business to anyone. Cape Breton from the air is much different than the view from a car and these guys can give the best view while having the experience to back it up. Highly recommended.
