Through the use of helicopters, it is possible to create thermal inversion, displacing a great volume of air from above at temperatures higher than those on the ground. The magnitude or coverage area directly depends on the volume of air displaced by the aircraft, fluctuating between 20 and 70 hectares.
Drying Fruits and Vines
In keeping with the aforementioned principle, the helicopter can aid in the drying of fruit through by way of air flow. It is extremely important to regulate the aircraft’s altitude in order to achieve maximum efficiency without harming the fruit or plant.
Fighting Forest Fires
The use of helicopters in the transportation of firefighters and dropping water is an invaluable tool. It is, however, highly important to develop a program for its employment, one that takes into account all the variables that affect what it is designed to protect, in order to be able to define the most appropriate type or types of aircraft. It is not enough to talk in terms of a single helicopter; one must consider the capabilities required and above all the timeliness of their arrival, essential factors to the success of the operation.
Time gains value by virtue of what we do with it. A helicopter can be a great help in optimizing how you use your time, be it for pleasure or in the service of any private or public activity.
Remote and difficult to reach places make the helicopter an invaluable transportation tool. The appropriate selection of the type of helicopter and loading sites can allow for a high volume-per-hour ratio or a great number of cargo cycles, factors that can easily double your efforts if not properly planned for, which can have a significant effect on related projects.
Support for the Construction of Powerlines and Civil Engineering Projects
Helicopters can be used in civil engineering projects, such as high-altitude concrete pouring and the transportation of materials and equipment. They are especially useful for projects involving surfaces that do not allow for easy access or the use of large cranes. With respect to powerlines, there are a variety of factors that make helicopters as important support tool. The first instance in which they provide an invaluable aid is during the design process, allowing for the plotting of powerlines while obviating the need for ground access, thus avoiding the construction of roads, and diminishing the need to deal with multiple property owners. It can also reduce the number of towers or pylons resulting from an analysis that does not factor in air transportation. The use of helicopters is also highly efficient for the surveillance and maintenance of existing powerlines via the transportation of specialized teams for tasks including the maintenance of live wires.
Mining and Prospecting
The need to explore is a basic principal associated with helicopters, especially when you take into account our country’s mountain ranges, which make this means of transportation highly popular in the Chilean and international mining industries. Helicopters allow for the best use of your time in developing projects and getting results.
Tourism and Aerial Photography
Our country’s scenic beauty and the growth of domestic and international demand for adventure sports, taken in combination with the dearth of adequate infrastructure allowing access to our natural wonders (especially in the southern part of the country), have motivated us to develop a project that will be an important part of our business.
Aerial Filming with State-of-the-Art Gyro-stabilized Camera Systems
Information is an important part of decision making and the management of resources in pursuit of our goals. As such, our service provides real-time images with HD and infrared capabilities. Meanwhile, this service can also be used for making films, commercials, documentaries, events, etc.
