Precision Lifting

We like to think of our three Airbus AS350 B2 helicopters as mobile sky cranes

Our aircraft are equipped with hooks for precision long-line work. We have an array of lifting accessories to increase versatility such as concrete skips, gravel skips, multi-hook carousels, remote control hooks, PVC carry bags, carry boxes, pallet folks, dart lifters, grapples etc.

Our ground-crew are experts at rigging loads in a manner that they fly gracefully. Our pilots and are very experienced at delivering loads safely and efficiently.

We operate:

  • 3 Airbus AS350 B2 lifting up to 900 kg based at Piopio, New Plymouth and Hokitika.
  • 1 Airbus AS350 BA lifting up to 600 kg based at New Plymouth.
  • 2 MD 500D lifting up to 450 kg based at Piopio and Hokitika.
  • 1 Bell 206 Jet Ranger lifting up to 450 kg based at Maxwell (boundary of South Taranaki & Wanganui).
