Why is this useful?
Just a few practical real-world examples!
Aerial Construction Support:
Helicopters eliminate both the setup and tear down costs of conventional cranes making helicopter pilots a desirable asset on any construction team. The lifting capabilities of a helicopter allow for a high degree of stability and highly accurate placements of materials on jobs including air conditioner units, steel columns, light poles, etc.
Often contracted by government agencies and insurance companies, helicopter pilots can easily access remote areas to salvage downed aircrafts.
Tree Harvesting and Hauling:
Helicopter pilots help bring holiday cheer to your local community by contracting with local Christmas tree companies to cut cost and time by hauling the holiday showcase item of the year by helicopter.
