Whitsunday Helicopters can offer aerial lifting at very competitive rates compared to crane hire and standby and set-up rates – our helicopter fleet is able to get the job done quicker, safer and cheaper.
Helicopters are more versatile than a mobile crane. All lift operation requests are tailor made to suit each company’s specific requirements.
For lifting and slinging, our helicopters are fitted with cargo hooks and remote long-line hooks. All pilots are highly experienced with sling work and possess the skills for precision positioning of loads.
Our helicopters have a lifting capacity up to 1000kg. We also provide experienced ground crew to ensure safe and efficient operations on the ground whilst slinging is being conducted. Pilot and ground crew can communicate via UHF or VHF radio.
All necessary equipment such as strops, nets, slings, cables and hooks are provided by us.
