AT THE TENDER AGE OF FIVE, PATRIC WELLS WAS MOVING MILK AND POP BOTTLES FROM HIS FATHER’S STRATFORD, ONTARIO, RETAIL FOOD STORE TO A NEARBY STORAGE BUILDING FOR 5 CENTS AN HOUR. THAT’S QUITE A YOUNG AGE TO JOIN THE BUSINESS WORLD, BUT IT PROVIDED THE FOUNDATION FOR HIS SUCCESS TODAY. “I GUESS IT GIVES A KID A GOOD WORK ETHIC, BECAUSE I STILL WORK HARD EVERY DAY,” WELLS SAYS.


Wells doesn’t have to prove his continuing work ethic; knowing that he operates four businesses simultaneously is enough. Combined, they offer a full range of services to customers seeking to buy or lease a helicopter and mold it to fit their precise needs.


East West Helicopter Inc. (EWH) based in Harrison, Ohio, has supported the helicopter industry for more than four decades, providing maintenance and parts sales, helicopter sales and leasing. Panterra Heli Support Ltd. (PHSL) based in Beamsville, Ontario, provides MRO, heavy maintenance, avionics integration, engineering, custom paint and other customizations, completions, one-off configurations, and field support for existing leases. NS Air Leasing and Borderline Air expand upon the sales and leasing aspect of the group, especially the Airbus product line.


What other leasing companies often cannot provide in- house, the group can provide. This is a “one-stop shop” philosophy, which provides for exceptional customer service, tight quality control on the entire process, plus flexibility and innovation.


And the group is not tied to a dollar minimum on leases like larger companies. “It keeps me hopping,” Wells says of his expansion into four businesses. “It makes me think back to that 5-cents-an-hour job.”
