The use of a helicopter as an aerial crane may be an ideal solution for a variety of difficult situations throughout Southern California, including:

  • Placement over a large rooftop, where the reach of a conventional crane is insufficient.
  • Delivering loads to sites over water crossings.
  • Tall buildings, where the delivery site too high for conventional crane.
  • Construction work, such as Power Line, Tower Erection, Cell Towers, and where vehicle Access is unavailable or restricted due to environmental concerns.
  • Jobs with Critical time restrictions, including the replacement of communications systems and power management equipment.
