The team at Fortescue Helicopters have a large range of aerial work capabilities and experience supporting mining operations.
We are also the only CASA approved charter operator based in the Pilbara region (refer to our charter page)
The company holds operational approval for:
- Aerial Photography & Filming
- Spotting of Fire, Flood, Flora & Fauna
- Environmental Studies
- Sampling & Surveying
- Pipeline Inspection
- Property Survey
- Feral Animal Control
- Frost Protection
- Sling Load Operations
We specialise in and have extensive experience with sling loads and precision aerial lifting including drill rig construction and transport.
Utilising the cost effective R44 aircraft for the majority of this work, we have held several contracts to support in-field drilling programs in remote and isolated areas. The cost efficiency we have been able to provide to our respective clients projects has gone a long way to ensuring the sustainability of their exploration programs.
We are able to supply larger aircraft for heavier lifting on request.
Tenement pegging, sample collecting and General site survey also make up a part of our day to day work.
With bases across our region no job is too big or small and we welcome all enquiries.
