The helicopter is an indispensable tool for some work. It allows to lift heavy loads in areas often inaccessible (mountain, ravine, forests, sea etc ...) otherwise than by way of air.
Different models are used for these aerial works depending on the weight of the loads to be lifted. The pilot of the helicopter must be very precise, coordination with the ground crew is an important element of the safety and the profitability of the flights. The fuel consumption is very important, dead times, engine on, are to be avoided. A big congratulations to the pilot and to the team of the Swiss company Helog Heliswiss present on the images of the photo gallery below.
