Helicopter HVAC Lifting Services

Ansell & Brown Aviation Offers,

Precision Helicopter HVAC Aerial Lift Services.

Did you know that cranes are not the only lifting method to help install new or remove old HVAC units? Helicopters are an excellent tool that will save your company time, money and increase safety. Moving heavy objects such as heat and air handler units to difficult to reach areas or from unsuitable ground setup locations, can sometimes make traditional methods such as manual lifting or the use of a crane impractical, dangerous or just too expensive. This is where we at Ansell & Brown Aviation can help.

Why Use Helicopters To Lift HVAC Systems?
It's Safe, Efficient, Fast & Accurate.


Why Ansell & Brown Aviation?

With over 4 years of external load experience, an exemplary safety record and a reputation for being able to carry out difficult lifts, our professional helicopter crews are able to take the stress out of HVAC installations.

  1. Safety
    We're bound by Federal Regulations to ensure the safety of all personnel involved, on the ground and in the air as well as the general public. All our crews are highly trained professionals with no accidents or incidents in our history.


  2. Certified
    Ansell & Brown Aviation is a FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) certified FAR 133 External Load Operator.


  3. Crane Disadvantages
    Cranes typically need a large area to setup with a strong suitable surface, within reach of where the units will be installed. This location needs to be free of wires and other obstacles with good access to be able to operate safely. Damage to underground infrastructure from the sheer weight of the crane can cause more problems and liability issues for the contractor.


  4. Helicopter Advantages
    We can transport loads from locations that are remote or have restricted access without needing to land. There is no limitation to how high we can lift a unit and have no problem maneuvering over buildings, wires, trees, congested areas or other obstacles. Setup time is minimal; we land (if possible), ground crew checks the load, conduct a safety brief and hook up. Equipment can be placed precisely - even in a confined area.
