The attached photograph is Associated Helicopters modified Bell Model 47D rotary-wing aircraft in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This was the first Canadian commercial helicopter in Alberta and arrived in the back of a dump truck back in 1950. Note  that the helicopter is on wheeled gear. This was before skids were available for helicopters. The helicopter was first used in oil and gas exploration in northern Alberta and flown by a  U.S. pilot for the first year. No Associated pilots were trained on helicopters at the time. Telleff Vassjo was the first Associated fixed wing pilot to be trained on the Bell 47D in the fall of 1950 at the airport in Edmonton, Alberta.
