UTILITY / AERIAL SURVEY
The flat floor lay-out of the AS 350 cabin as well as the large sliding doors allow for ease of loading. High skid gear allows the pilot to place the helicopter on unprepared areas which is ideal for soil sampling operations. Luggage bays can accommodate up to 300 kg, leaving the cabin open for personnel. Seats can be installed or removed within minutes to change from cargo to passenger configuration.
Savannah Aerial Filming operate two state of the art SHOTOVER F1 stabilized aerial platforms. See more details at our dedicated site linked below:
EXPLORATION DRILL SUPPORT
In areas where limited road access, steep terrain or forest environments restrict vehicle movement, the helicopter shows its full potential. Exploration drill rigs which are slightly modified to ease assembly and disassembly are relocated between drill site positions with minimum delay. Trained ground personnel have constant communication with the pilot and acts as a link to other personnel on the ground.
AERIAL SUPPORT & CONSTRUCTION
Aerial construction has many advantages over the use of crane services, both in manpower and bottom line costs. Utilizing a helicopter as an aerial crane eliminates the setup and tear down costs of employing a conventional crane. Helicopters enable contractors to work quickly and safely around conveyors, air conditioning units, chillers, towers, etc. The traditional problems of cranes not having enough ‘boom’ to reach into expansive rooftops are no longer an issue.
WILDLIFE & GAME CONSERVATION
We have extensive experience in the mass capture and darting of all game species by using smaller type helicopters such as the Robinson R44.
We specialise in wildlife relocation via aerial slinging. This method provides minimum stress on the animal and positions the game directly into holding pens, reducing time and manpower considerably.
FIRE FIGHTING AND RESCUE SERVICES
Helicopters by the nature of what they do, can reach the places not accessible by land vehicle or foot, and when it comes to Fire Suppression the aerial advantage can make the difference. The helicopter is also a valuable tool in getting critical information on fires from the air.
We give you the comprehensive helicopter charter service for practically any type of transfer you might require. Savannah Helicopters offers unmatched professionalism, experience and flexibility.

Our fleet has expanded to include two fixed wing aircraft, a Beechcraft King Air F90 and a Cessna Caravan 208B in VIP configuration.
