No matter where their duties take them, the men and women of the Canadian Forces know they can rely on the CH-146 Griffon helicopter to get them there and back safely. From rescuing civilians in the high Arctic to airlifting supplies. The Griffon is used at home primarily to support Army training, and other tasks including search and rescue missions. The Griffon is equipped with a hoist that enables it to extract people and cargo from almost any terrain. The Griffon can be equipped with a Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) system and a powerful searchlight, helping it to navigate and search in low-visibility conditions.
