Construction & External Load

If something or someone has to go from point A to B and we can fit it in the helicopter or we can attach it, we can do it, up to 3500 pounds.

Our aircraft and pilots are FAR Part 133 and FAR Part 135 certified which allows legal crew shuttle to remote areas. If needed, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval for the operation is obtained (Congested Area Lift Plan). We are as flexible as our customer needs us to be and are available around the clock.

Ground crew, as well as handheld radios, cargo nets, swivels and other specialized equipment are available. In-house engineers can create specific load attachments when needed. Our late-model, four-wheel-drive fuel support vehicles maximize the utilization of the aircraft in remote areas.

Our aircraft are equipped with digital FM radios which enable communication with the local dispatch center or ground crew. Aircraft with satellite phones are dispatched, when needed, to allow communication even in remote areas. Satellite-based GPS tracking systems allow real-time flight operation monitoring via the internet.

Our dedicated mechanics and parts support system ensure minimal down time during inspections or maintenance in the field.
