A Brief History

Helicopters, what would we do without them?

Development of the helicopter began when the FL282 went into service for the military, being the first helicopter to be mass produced which made it possible for them to be used in WW II. This made it the most popular helicopter to be used at this time.

Since then helicopters of many different designs have been produced for purposes of the military, for the emergency services, for companies providing aerial mapping, geographical surveys together with being air support for the offshore oil and gas industry.  They are used in the tourism industry, helping in the telecommunication industry and aiding the hoisting of air cranes. As time moves on, many other uses are being found everyday for the utilization of this very versatile mode of air transport.

The services helicopters provide, play a very important part in the success of many businesses. They are  now, not just a luxury for the more affluent business or various service providers but a necessity they can`t do without.

Helicopters need pilots, and because of the many various types of helicopters and the jobs they have to do, these men must be very well trained and have lots of flying experience behind them. Controlling a helicopter is not as easy as it looks. Health wise the pilots must be mentally and physically fit.  Having a heart attack in a helicopter would not be the wisest thing to do.

Helicopter pilots have to be experienced flyers. Many of them come out of the military where their training is very comprehensive and demanding.  They have to have the minimum of 200 flight hours `logged up´ to become a commercial pilot, then to be able to fly various kinds of helicopters and develop the ability to fly at night wearing night goggles that limits their field of sight to 40%.  All flights are made according to government standards.

They have to be qualified in the various types of specialized flying for the jobs they will be doing, and use the applicable safety standards to comply with the needs of the aviation authorities. Their flying hours are closely monitored so the pilots are not jeopardizing the end result of the work they are being paid to do, and more importantly they are not putting their own lives in danger.  The amount of flight hours they have and the types of helicopters they are able to fly guarantee their places in the premier companies of the global helicopter industry.

A series of helicopters such as the Bell 206 Jet ranger, 206 Long ranger and the 407, can be used in many different capacities. From being used in power line scanning, to doing live line maintenance, mining explorationand aerial cinematography. Helping also with the many aerial applications needed for various types of businesses, being used as transportation for tourism and also the electronic news gathering industry.

There are many other types of helicopters in the aviation world to choose from and using the right ones to do the relevant jobs needed is most important for the client and the future of their business.

In choosing the correct type of helicopter for the job you ensure a good reputation for the company, keep the costs down and control your time efficiently. Having a fleet of well maintained helicopters done in accordance with appropriate  regulations ensuring their airworthiness gives confidence to the client and they feel as if they have the `right company for the job´.

Helicopters are a significant invention for this day and age and the tasks they perform are many and varied helping to make life easier. Anton Flatter producing the FL282 did not know the change he was helping to make in daily living
