A Richmond-based aerial survey firm has been recognized at the 2012 B.C. Aboriginal Business Awards.

Kisik Aerial Survey Inc. received an outstanding achievement award in the Business of the Year category (two to 10 person enterprise).

Kisik is the only 100 per cent Aboriginal owned and qualified Aboriginal supplier of aerial survey work in Canada.

The Richmond company was founded by Teara Fraser, whose inspiration to pilot the skies came during a trip to Africa in 2001. After flying her first solo flight in 2002, she obtained her commercial pilot’s licence, and has been flying commercially ever since.

She started Kisik in 2009, and holds the positions of person responsible for maintenance, chief pilot, operations manager and accountable executive. She also serves as the executive director of the B.C. Aviation Council.
