F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should the roof be prepared for a helicopter lift?

  • All loose debris needs to be removed.
  • Plywood, curb caps, nails, sheet metal, roofing material can become airborne from helicopter rotor wash.
  • ALL roofing material that is not completely finished and secured MUST be screwed down every 1 foot or weighted-down over its entire unsecured length.
  • Large bundles of insulation will slide easily and can become a safety hazard or blow off the roof causing property damage.

How quickly can I get a helicopter to perform a lift on my project?

  • Varies from next day to several weeks.
  • Typical lead time averages 2-3 weeks.

Is there a minimum job size necessary to use a helicopter?

  • Absolutely not! No project is too small for AirGo Flight.

Where can a helicopter land?

  • Anywhere that we have land owners permission.
  • No federal restrictions.

Can anyone be onsite during a lift?

  • Anyone located within the safety critical exclusionary area must participate in the pre-lift safety meeting. No exceptions.
  • Anyone that unexpectedly shows up after the lift begins, will mandate shut down of the aircraft, re-briefing, and involve additional fees.

Is a helicopter as safe as a crane?

  • MUCH safer as a result of GREATER regulation and MORE extensive crew training.
  • Our crews are trained in Hazmat, First Aid, CPR and AED with OSHA 10 and 30 certification.

What rigging does the helicopter bring to the site?

  • 50′ of load line, 35′ 4-point rigging with spreader frame, 20 shackles, (12) 20′ nylon straps and swivel hook.
  • Additional rigging as required including 100′ or more of load line, remote hook, and cargo net.

What if the roofing contractor leaves items on the roof?

  • Items MUST be removed and/or secured prior to the helicopter lift.
  • The helicopter contractor does not not assume any liability for property damage to materials left on the roof or damages if blown off the roof.
  • The flight crew will make suggestions for removal of problematic materials and debris. If material is left, then the flight crew may require a signature verifying assumption of financial liability for any damage or injury caused by problematic material.

Does my company need to have previous experience with helicopter lifts?

  • NOT AT ALL… our crew can handle all of the details from start to finish.
  • We will completely train your crew on the site PRIOR to conducting the lift.

Where does AirGo Flight operate?

  • Currently, we focus primarily in the lower 48 states of the USA.
  • We also work internationally.

Receiving approval to use a crane at/near an airport can be a hassle…what about for a helicopter?

  • Airports are built for any aircraft including helicopters.
  • Always easier to receive permission to operate a helicopter at an airport than to get permits with ALL the restrictions of a crane.

Do you provide custom rigging?

  • Yes. We can assist with the design, fabrication and deployment of custom rigging.
