Wildlife Management

Helicopters allow scientists and wildlife management teams to survey animal populations from the air without invading the habitat, and they can travel low to the ground, spotting animals that might be more difficult to track from a higher altitude.

Further implications of helicopter wildlife management include:

  • Total Population Per Acre

  • Buck Quality Index

  • Buck to Doe Ratios

  • Fawn Production

  • Animal Capture & Release

  • Animal Harvesting Potential

  • Predator / Endangered Species Tracking

  • Herd Count

  • Migratory Implications

Agricultural - Environmental Helicopter Services


When there is a lot of acreages to cover, helicopters provide the ideal method of delivery for pesticides, fungicides and other chemicals. The mid-sized Robinson R44 helicopter has the capacity to carry up to 80 gallons of liquid, and pilots use GPS and flow-rate controllers to apply the right amount of chemical in the right areas. They also conduct aerial seeding operations.

Thermal Imaging - Environmental Helicopter Services

Thermal Imaging

Using thermographic IR cameras, helicopters provide valuable real-time information for firefighters, utility companies and rescue personnel. Light-duty helicopters like the Bell 212 are equipped with the technology to produce high-quality thermograms that can pinpoint hot spots in structural fires and degradation of solar panels or power lines.

Environmental Services

When the environment is involved, people don’t typically think of helicopters as being efficient. However, when an operation can take twice as long on the ground as it can from the air, helicopters can actually speed up operations - not only saving money, but also saving fuel and leaving less of an ecological footprint!

Heli-logging - Environmental Helicopter Services


In the timber industry, precision and speed are important. Heli-logging is safer and more efficient than traditional logging. Stems are removed vertically, avoiding potential impacts to the environment or nearby pipelines or utility lines. With a heavy-duty helicopter like the S-64 Skycrane, production can reach more than 10,000 pounds of timber a month. Staying power to operate in hot conditions and at high altitudes without overheating. The Bell 212 is a popular helicopter choice for interior forest work. It can carry nearly 4,000 pounds externally and has a service ceiling of 20,000 feet.

Mining - Environmental Helicopter Services


The mining industry requires flexibility and stamina on the part of prospectors, investors and support staff. Helicopters play a vital role in the discovery and harvesting gems and precious metals. The survey areas to find a source, transport equipment and parts to the mining site and assist in long line and vertical reference slinging.

Aerial Photography - Environmental Helicopter Services

Aerial Photography

The use of helicopters in aerial photography has gone beyond the film industry. Real estate companies, developers and investors utilize aerial videography to market their holdings for sale or to scout new development areas using thermal or geophysical surveys. Government entities also study aerial films to predict potential flood zones, create topographic maps for conservation efforts and inspect areas for signs of seismic disturbance.

Safety Services - Environmental Helicopter Services

Safety Services

Helicopters offer precise, accurate, and swift solutions. This makes them perfect for time-sensitive operations. Rescuing, fighting fires, and lifting for what our aircraft do best!

Offshore Operations - Environmental Helicopter Services

Offshore Operations

Working largely over water, helicopters assist in the maintenance and construction of wind farms and oil/gas platforms, assist ships with daily operations, and transport cargo, equipment, and personnel to and from offshore rigs or vessels. FairLifts coordinates helicopter services using experienced pilots with the training to work safely in all environmental settings.

Firefighting - Environmental Helicopter Services


In the case of a wildfire, helicopters are important tools to slow the spread of an established fire by creating fire lines or firebreaks. Because they can be deployed quickly and make multiple trips to the source of a blaze, helicopters make the ideal transport vehicle for firefighting personnel and water to a site. They can also hover over hot spots and treat vegetation and brush ahead of the fire with a retardant to avoid spreading the wildfire any further.

Hydroseeding - Environmental Helicopter Services


Land that has been scorched by wildfires or covered in water often needs help to return the habitat it once was. Light-duty helicopters have the speed and maneuverability to locate areas of land that might need reseeded or fertilized to encourage new growth. Pilots can also spread retardant to areas that might be affected by nearby fires, or fertilizer to help crops flourish.

Debris Removal - Environmental Helicopter Services

Debris Removal

After a natural disaster, there is destruction. From individual homes to businesses and forest acreage, tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, fires, and other quick-hitting events can destroy whole communities within minutes. In situations like this, air travel might be the only way to enter and leave areas hardest hit. Mid-sized helicopters and aerial cranes are often used to remove large debris like tree trunks, crushed vehicles, and parts of homes.

Victim Transport / SAR - Environmental Helicopter Services

Victim Transport / SAR

It is popular for law enforcement and EMS to use helicopters for transporting people out of communities that have either: already been hit by or in danger of being affected by a disaster, flooding, wildfires, or hurricanes. Mid-sized helicopters like the MD500 are perfect for evacuations and other search and rescue missions because they are constructed to be able to travel into tight spots and maneuver over unpredictable terrain. The bubble window design also permits the pilot to see the surroundings even during a close approach.
