At HeliQwest, our Flight and Maintenance Crews are highly trained specialists. Pilots have extensive experience with an average of over 6500 flight hours logged in helicopters. Maintenance crews are the finest the helicopter industry produce, most have well over 12 years experience in our industry.
Our fleet of helicopters along with its crews and maintenance programs can boast as having one of the highest utilization and safety records in the helicopter industry.
Safety and Production is the number one key, and foundation to our success. Our flight crews typically use 150-foot longlines and vertical reference flying techniques, for most external load operations. This keeps the helicopter well away from obstacles and ground personnel with the added benefit of reduced rotor downwash felt at ground level. Whether or not your project requires the use of these special skills and techniques, HeliQwest crews will timely and safely complete your project, large or small.
