Aerial Filming & Photography

  1. If you are looking for a helicopter company to provide aerial film and photography, then look no further. Outback Aviation Logistics staff are highly experienced in all aspects of media operations.
  2. Vision from a helicopter provides a quality of imagery and camera angles that cannot be achieved any other way. Drones are often not suitable due to restrictions on flying over built-up areas, inability to carry larger cameras and quality lenses, and restrictions on flying height.
  3. With unique external load capabilities, our helicopters can transport just about anything. Whether you need materials brought into a remote mining exploration lease or a commercial air conditioner placed on top of a building, our helicopters and experienced staff at Outback Aviation logistics have what it takes to get what you need, where you need it.
  4. Helicopters are an ideal way to overcome logistical issues such as coordination of resources, site access, and time constraints. Jobs that would normally take days to a week to complete can now be completed within a few hours using a helicopter.
  5. Every external load operation is unique, so we take the time to assess each task requirement and determine the best technique that will accomplish the job safely. Our company is Part 138 certified, and our pilots are trained to perform Class B and Class D helicopter external load operations.
  6. Here are some examples of external load operation services we provide:
  7. Aerial Construction Support: Utilising a helicopter eliminates the setup and tear down costs of employing a conventional crane. From commercial air conditioners to steel columns and light poles, our heavy lifting capabilities allow for a high degree of stability and accurate placement.
  8. Aircraft Recovery: Our helicopters and advanced equipment allow us to access remote areas to salvage downed aircrafts. We have been contracted by government agencies or insurance companies to locate the aircraft and export it with ease and precision.
