Yellowknife’s unique location and climate make it an ideal destination for cold weather testing, carrying significant potential for economic diversification and business tourism.
 
Since 2018, the YZF COLD WEATHER TESTING WORKING GROUP, a partnership consisting of the Yellowknife Airport, GNWT Department of Industry, Tourism & Investment, Northwest Territories Tourism and the City of Yellowknife, actively markets YZF as a location for cold weather testing.   
 
As a result, this winter, Yellowknife Airport hosted Bell and their 30 engineers and pilots to test their newest helicopter, Bell 525 Relentless, in cold weather for a period of 90 days.
