Air Search and Rescue BC

PEP Air is a BC-wide volunteer air search and rescue organization with over 400 members who provide tens of thousands of hours of service each year. Our highly-trained volunteers search for missing persons, aircraft or other targets using privately-owned aircraft. We provide safety-aware crews and aircraft to assist Canadian Forces search and rescue, RCMP, and BC ground search and rescue. PEP Air also carries out photographic infrastructure damage assessments from the air for Emergency Management and Climate Readiness BC and conducts searches and other missions using advanced RPAS (drones).
