Precision Helicopters have performed many contracts where the transportation and lifting of loads into exact positions has been the primary requirement. All Precision Helicopters helicopters are fitted with highly accurate GPS devices enabling us to arrive at specific locations, irrespective of the terrain and weather conditions.
The lifting of all sorts of loads is routine to Precision Helicopters. Often this form of transportation is highly efficient bringing significant cost benefits to our client.
Depending on the nature of the load and where it has to be placed, a suitable long-line and strops are used. If the load has to be placed through tree cover, the line may be in excess of 50 metres.
Our pilots are highly experienced in vertical reference flying and are supported by equally skilled ground crew.
We can help save vineyards from economic disaster during frost conditions by flying slowly over the crop. During cold and still conditions, the down draught from the helicopter causes the slightly warmer air layered above to circulate amongst the vines, reducing the likelyhood of frost damage. Helicopters are effective for frost protection for up to 50 acres at a time.
Because of the high demand for helicopters, it is advisable to call us well in advance to ensure availability.
