Backcountry Infrastructure Implementation

For years, SKY has built helipads and infrastructure in the backcountry.

We use local materials to save cost, and keep the ecology of the surrounding environment intact.

Environmental / Wildlife Survey

When it comes to keeping the environment safe, our team has experienced personnel that can conduct surveys for pine beetle, timber counting and identification, wildlife counting and identification, and fishery survey.

Vertical Reference

Since 2011, SKY has provided vertical reference service in the forestry sector since including helipad construction, reforestation, and construction. We’ve worked with BC parks, reforestation companies, and BC wildfire unit crews in diverse situations.

SKY has pilots that are also capable of conducting safe and efficient long ling services for many potential clients or industries.

CREW TRANSPORT

Because of our pilot’s extensive experience flying through mountain terrain, our whole team is capable of transporting crew and gear in any mountain situation. In the past, we’ve worked with firefighters, emergency response, forestry teams, and others to transport their teams and supplies.

Whatever industry you may be working in, our team and diverse fleet can work with you to fly safely between your sites.

Wildfire Suppression

SKY has relationships with provincial governments to assist in wildfire management and forestry work. Due to our large fleet and year-round pilots, we are able to respond quickly to incidents.

Our select team of wildfire suppression pilots are selected specifically for their accreditation and experience to support firefighters. On top of firefighting, we also use our thermal imaging program to detect hot spots and fire perimeters to help prevent further fires.

Infrared Scanning

SKY has worked with the BC forestry, provincial governments, and environmental groups to support the safety of our forests. We have an in-house thermal GIS program for wildfire hot spot and perimeter mapping, forestry cut block hot spot detection and wildlife detection.

Our experienced pilots work with a licensed thermal technician who operates our state of the art FLIR sensor during flight. We use the ESRI suite of software to produce the best results, and our program lead has a university-level certification in GIS.

HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGING

Whether gathering data for AOI’s, buildings, or assets, SKY can provide highly detailed aerial imaging for any project. Our pilots have extensive experience working in mountainous terrain, preparing us for any and all industry needs.

SKY has a strategic partnership with ASAP Geomatix to ensure unprecedented GIS resolutions, state of the art technology, and industry-leading solutions. If you have an imagery request that is out of the box, put us to the test, we know you will be impressed with our custom solutions.
