The Bell 214B - 2950HP 'Heavy-Lifter' helicopter is the largest, most powerful single engine helicopter manufactured and operated in the world, with its maximum lifting capacity of up to 3000kg, plus a 2.5 hr endurance (with reserve), these machines are the most productive and cost effective helicopters in their class, making it a magnificent machine for carrying out operations including Fire Fighting, Aerial Lifting, and Charter.
When it comes to Fire Fighting, the Bell 214B is the most versatile and cost effective fire fighter in the world, and can be fitted with either the ‘Tsunami” Belly Tank or up to a 3000litre Under-slung Bucket. Furthermore, since all of our machines are fitted with skid-mounted mirrors, it allows the pilot to keep a view whilst flying.
The outstanding aerial lifting ability of the 214B allows for
With the exceptional performance in “hot and high” conditions, the Bell 214B can operate at a maximum payload of up to 14000 feet density altitude, and with the skid undercarriage, it allows them to operate in confined spaces and remote locations with minimal support crew.
The Bell 214B can also be utilized for Charter, as it has seating for up to 12 fully equipped passengers, crew, or fire fighters, which is a cost effective way to move staff to and from isolated work sites, or to carry out survey flights.
Prior to ALL operations, risk assessments are carried out to ensure safety of our crew, our client, and our cargo. Any ‘High Risk’ activities are covered by a site specific Job Safety and Environmental Analysis (JSEA) and Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS).
