NEW CORPORATE OFFICE
KBAL has recently moved its Corporate offices to 808 – 55th AVE NE. This has allowed our Maintenance department to expand into our previous space and increase its ability to handle aircraft through the hangar. We are still happy to answer your calls at 403-291-3300 and transfer you to all the same people with whom you are familiar; they may just be sitting at a different location. All our company mail will still be delivered to 290 McTavish Road NE.
