FairLifts provides immediate helicopter support for hurricanes in Biloxi, Mississippi, including search and rescue, charters, surveys, emergency lifts, personnel transport, and much more. Working with a global network of helicopter operators, we ensure timely and cost-effective service during hurricane season in Mississippi.
The 2018 hurricane season in Biloxi, Mississippi, began on June 1 and extends through November 30. This year marks thirteen years since the devastating Hurricane Katrina struck the areas, claiming 231 lives, destroying thousands of homes and causing billions of dollars in damage.
Local energy companies, contractors, and hurricane experts are focused on enhanced forecasting, planning, and decision making to prevent events like Hurricane Katrina. Luckily, new technology allows meteorologists and companies to correctly predict major storms and their paths, allowing helicopters to safely plan evacuation routes.
For energy companies and contractors, the priorities are safety, protection of facilities, and maintaining oil and gas production. Most companies will evacuate workers at least three days before conditions worsen, working with companies such as FairLifts to schedule helicopters for evacuation operations. Our network of operators provides helicopters that can transport 12 people at a time from any location. Flights usually extend from sunrise to sunset with crews limited to 10 hours of flight time per day.
In the aftermath of a hurricane, FairLifts can schedule helicopters for search and rescue operations, surveys of destruction or damage, as well as heavy lifts to transport replacement equipment to both onshore and offshore locations. Expert pilots ensure safe, timely and cost-effective helicopter solutions during hurricane season for production and exploration operations, ad hoc supply and equipment delivery missions, emergency flights, freight and cargo services, and executive tours.
FairLifts is committed to ensuring life-saving helicopter support with aircraft equipped with medical staff and equipment, and also to aiding companies before and after a hurricane strikes.
