Our UH-60 aircraft provide efficient transportation of oversized items in tough to reach areas via a longline solution. A flexible means of conveyance for various building materials and towers, helicopter transport offers less time-consuming delivery to remote locations and places that would not be accessible by traditional cranes.
Helinet offers turnkey LiDAR solutions, incorporating aerial and terrestrial scanning and post-processing that delivers high accuracy and detail-rich data sets. Our in-house LiDAR systems are available for rapid deployment on fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft.
Helicopters provide timely access to assist with aerial pipeline and powerline inspection due to not being restricted by roads, impassable terrain or property lines like typical fixed-wing or drone alternatives. With assistance from Helinet, clients are able to benefit from a more in-depth view of hard to reach landscapes and are able to be alerted regarding potential issues that may not be revealed otherwise, including recognition of potential right-of-way (ROW) encroachments or identifying equipment that may need repair.
Although there are several alternatives to fighting frost damage, helicopters are the most effective tool in frost protection management, capable of applying warmer air to a larger concentration of crops at one time. Damage to crops due to freezing and frost damage contributes to more agriculture economic losses than any other weather-related hazard but with the assistance of Helinet Aviation’s Utility team, agricultural clients can be sure that their crops are protected from frost damage.
Did you know that aerial application of seeding and fertilizers is over 500% more efficient than traditional methods? Let Helinet assist you with your agricultural needs by providing the aerial application of seeding and fertilizers at a fraction of the cost of doing it manually. These services not only reduce the cost of manual seeding but enable farmers to reduce their seeding time.
