Helicopter Lifts

The best way to efficently optimize any work assignment

Uses for Helicopter Lifts

Many tasks can be accomplished in a much safer, more efficient, and faster manner through HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) lifts than through traditional means. Among these tasks would be installing light poles or cooling towers, providing disaster relief and servicing communication towers, electrical towers, and electrical cabinets. You can also use such helicopter lifts to service steel structures or deliver personnel and equipment to remote locations. This service can also be used for firefighting, for delivering concrete, and even in filming a movie or commercial.

Even beyond the types of tasks listed here, there are plenty of uses that you could find for a helicopter lift. Just about any task that would require manual lifting and physical transport of an item can then be done aerially through the use of a heavy lift helicopter. Transporting materials by road is not only costly but it’s also usually time-consuming. You can easily turn jobs that would take days into hours with helicopter lifting services, saving money on gas and personnel while also reducing the chances of accidents, such as those that occur while out on the road. These type of lifts cover almost any kind of job.

Types of Aircraft Used

Heavy Lift Helicopters

Heavy lift helicopters, or helicopter lifts, that are used exclusively for transporting materials from one location to another are traditionally known as aerial cranes. They are essentially doing all of the duties of a standard crane on the ground, only they’re doing everything from the air. This allows for even more maneuverability than the regular crane. It’s much more feasible to reach very high locations with an aerial crane, as you don’t have to move a large and unwieldy ground crane and risk damage or injury in the process.

Helicopter lifts weren’t used until the 1950s, and it wasn’t until the 1960s that they started to become more popular in the field of construction, where they then took off in many other industries as well. The logging industry makes extensive use of aerial cranes, as this is cheaper and quicker than moving ground-based cranes, and it also reduces the risk of accidents or injuries in the process. The Bell 47 was the original helicopter used for this purpose, and the Bell brand is still used widely today. A variety of helicopters are used for different lifting and transportation purposes when it comes to performing the duties of an aerial crane.

A Variety of Helicopter Lifting Services

While construction and logging are definitely both big users of helicopter lifting services, that’s not all that you can use a helicopter for. For instance, a helicopter can transport medicine and food in the case of emergency, allowing you to get supplies to where they need to go quickly, and without having to worry about how to access difficult to reach areas. Generators and tanks can also be hauled with ease by helicopter lifts, allowing for fast response to situations that are rapidly changing, or even just the ability to deliver assets quickly and efficiently.

Since heavy equipment is often vital in so many buildings and locations, it stands to reason that the best way to get this equipment where it needs to go is to bypass cumbersome physical ground  transport, especially since this might not even be possible on the inside of the building. That’s where helicopter lifts and aerial cranes are valuable. Cooling towers are also vitally important, and they’re easily installed and serviced from the safety and security of a heavy lift helicopter. Communication towers are difficult to maintain from the ground, so utilizing a helicopter for this task makes the whole process so much easier.


You can also utilize these aerial cranes to service any steel structures you might have, taking care of the project in a way that no other method could. Some of the more interesting applications of such a service would be in the field of movies, TV, and commercials. Heavy lift helicopters could be used in critical scenes, either for the use of the aircraft in the scenes themselves or for getting the shots. You can also use them to transport film equipment or the cast and crew along the way.
