Helicopters have earned their place in history for many reasons, and one of them is their unique ability to deliver large pieces of machinery, people and resources to remote locations that fixed wing airplanes and even land based vehicles simply cannot reach. Our team is even able to deliver good to areas so remote where the terrain is so inhospitable, that you can’t even reach them safely on foot.
For decades helicopters have been lifting and safely delivering heavy equipment such as drills, fuel, machinery, as well as transporting staff and discovering new grounds. Companies have come to rely upon helicopters because they are versatile and can complete all the work that needs to be done, on time. When time and precision are crucial, aerial lifts are an extremely productive and cost effective solution.
But that is only part of the story.
Helicopters have always been the unsung hero in areas such as British Columbia for their ability to work around the clock in the harshest conditions on every environmental cleanup, or natural disaster.
Our crew have years of experience working on some of the most challenging projects and we have flown countless environmental support programs, assisting companies in evaluating the impact of land use and providing access to remote locations and a bird’s eye view. We are experts in our field and offer our clients the ability to conduct:
Wildlife Tracking & Monitoring
Wildlife Net Capture
Aerial Surveying & Photography
Natural Disaster Inspection & Control
Crew & Camp Transport
Helicopters are a natural fit for this kind of dedicated work for their ability to:
Speed over long distances. Road transit times area unit halved for distances 50–200 km.
Access to remote areas, mountainous areas, over giant water expanses.
Indicated for severely ill/unstable patients
Enable early initiation of management by extremely trained medical workers and with special instrumentation.
Faster mobilization than fixed-wing craft.
Needs smaller landing area and might land nearer to or at hospitals.
While a truck or even a convoy may be able to carry a load of food or some medical supplies to a destination attached to a suitable road, helicopters are able to mobilize immediately and deliver entire kitchens, and set up emergency hospitals. They do need to have a crane or heavy lifting equipment and the job site and can directly deploy the cargo anywhere the client requests. We are also able to cover distances in a fraction of the time of a land based vehicle and often mae the difference in life saving rescues.
We are proud of what we do, and our place in history, and we are thankful for our amazing team of professionals who help us get the job done every time.
