Scope and content
The series consists of brochures, photographic prints, note pads, glossy folders and advertisement colour keys used by Okanagan Helicopters to advertise services and equipment. The brochures, printed between 1968 and 1970, informed clients of the company’s acquisition of new aircraft.
The series also consists of promotional material for the Aerial Line Stringer, dating to the late 1950s or early 1960s, and the Helicopter Underslung Spray System (HUSS) Bucket, which was patented in 1969.
The series also consists of a file that purports to be publicity material from the 1967 Abbotsford Airshow. Although it is unclear whether this is correct, captions on the photographs indicate that at least one of the images may have been taken at an airshow, and some of the photographs may have been used for publicity purposes.
The series also consists of graphic material that was used in the production of advertisements. Included are two sets of colour key transparencies and related material for advertisements with the tag lines “Okanagan Delivers” and “The Universal Experience.”
Related ephemera, such as badges, decals, matchbooks, and a baseball cap were transferred to the department of Human History at the Royal British Columbia Museum. Blank orange promotional note pads have been retained with the archival material.
The series is organized chronologically.
