Corporations and individuals have taken advantage of aerial work utilizing a helicopter for many of the following:

Commercial Photography/Filming:

Our pilots are highly trained to ensure shooting your project yields the most professional photos and videos. The doors to each helicopter are fully removable to allow for optimal visibility.  Our black R44 Raven II makes an excellent platform or story vehicle and has additional room for a variety of camera equipment.

Aerial Surveys

Pipeline/Power Line Patrol:

The fastest and most effective way to monitor power lines and pipelines for damage is from the air. Aerial patrol is an effective means of rapidly covering broad areas of remote power and pipeline assets. The focus of any patrol can be tailored to address specific needs due to environmental circumstances or regulatory changes.

Real Estate Survey:

Architects and real estate developers benefit from aerial surveys for project feasibility studies, evaluating potential sites onward through the entire construction process. Aerial survey is also a valuable marketing tool for developers.  Survey from a helicopter is the surest way to see exactly where development begins, and ends, as visibility from the ground is extremely limited in densely populated areas.

Field-Dirt Drying:

How much is wet soil costing you every hour or every day? Jerry Trimble Helicopters can reduce down time by utilizing the down wash from the rotors to help speed up the drying process. The helicopter will hover over the ground at 1 to 3 feet and disperse the airflow over saturated construction sites, wet concrete, and sporting greens.

Frost Protection:

In regions susceptible to losses from the untimely onset of frost, helicopters can be utilized on an as-needed basis to protect valuable crops from damage and destruction. Utilizing the rotor down wash effect, our helicopters gently circulate warm exhaust air around the plants protecting them from destructive frost.
