Helicopter GROUND SUPPORT SERVICES are charged every day we are are working on your job including travel days to and from your job.

Ground Support RATES & TERMS     PAGE

The Helicopter must be RE-FUELED every Two hours, OR flown to an Airport for Fuel.

In order to provide an ECONOMICAL and COST EFFICIENT Service we always dispatch a FUEL/SERVICE TRUCK with DRIVER/MECHANIC to RE-FUEL, SERVICE and MAINTAIN each Helicopter "in the Field." The COST of GROUND SUPPORT SERVICES is in ADDITION to the COST of our Helicopter Service. Please scroll down to see the Rates and Terms.

The Mechanic/Driver in our FUEL/SERVICE TRUCKS maintains Radio Communications with the Pilot in the Helicopter to Coordinate Re-Fueling Sites and to provide Flight Following Services as Required by the Federal Aviation Administration(FAA).

With Ground Support Services, the Helicopter can provide 25 Hours of service before the FUEL/SERVICE TRUCK must return to an airport for more fuel.

On jobs requiring an OVERNIGHT STAY we charge an additional $2.50 per mile to dispatch a Second FUEL/SERVICE TRUCK to pull the camp trailer to the job. We normally charge $5.00 per mile for the primary fuel service truck to pull the Helicopter Trailer to the Job.

RATES and TERMS are NEGOTIABLE on Long Term Contracts.

When Trailering the Helicopter to your job, we pull the Helicopter Trailer with our Ford F-550 Fuel Truck as described on our Helicopter Trailering Page, AND we pull the Camp Trailer with our Ford Ford F-450 Fuel Truck.
