Specialist Helicopter Lifting Services

Heavy Lifting Aerial Services – Specialist Lifting

Our helicopters can lift up to 1.2 tonnes into hard to reach locations.

Why Use A Helicopter Rather Than A Crane Service For Heavy Lifting?

The turn around time – and not paying for the time to get to the location – crane or driving makes helicopter lifting services more economical than you would think. A few of the reasons people like to use us for heavy lifting jobs is:

Fast: We can be airborne and ready to go in 20 Min. Most jobs are faster than setting up a crane and much easier to park in a congested inner city area.

Cost Effective: When times is the essence a helicopter can be in and job completed in a very short space of time.

Safety: The BK-117 has powerful twin engines – with superior lifting capability. Should one engine fail, the helicopter can continue flying on one engine.

Experience: With over 30 years in the industry and over 10,000 hours flying helicopters, our chief pilot Shamus Howard has lifted everything from fire buckets, to tree limbs.


Access: We can get into areas that cranes and large vehicles cannot. We can also get to remote locations faster, relocating people and materials in less time than driving or on foot.
