Helicopter Rigging by Art Sferlazzo

RED BANK, N.J. - June 14, 2015 - PRLog -- When it comes to rigging, people are always interested in a helicopter rig. R. Baker & Son has been involved in many aerial rigging projects, and there are extensive planning, coordination, weather and safety considerations involved. The majority of helicopter projects in our New York City / New Jersey area involve HVAC equipment or other similar equipment, but the possibilities for aerial rigging are nearly limitless, so it is always fascinating to talk to an aerial rigging specialist.

In speaking with a pilot on a recent helicopter rigging project, he described the many different types of aerial projects that take place around the U.S. and the world. Helicopters are used to perform all kinds of lifts, such as rigging power grid towers and antennas to remote areas and removing mechanical equipment and junk cars left in streams and other inaccessible areas. Helicopter rigging has been involved with concrete delivery and modular home construction to some of the most remote areas in the U.S., as there is no other way to get the material to that location. Giant wind turbine towers and blades have been delivered to locations where no usable roads exist. Helicopters have rigged swimming pools and hot tubs too impossible locations on overhangs of houses where a crane rig was not feasible.

Beachgoers along the eastern seaboard are accustomed to seeing small planes tow advertising banners along the shore, but helicopters are now being used for advertising purposes in all different areas as they attract so much attention. The pilot also spoke of a recent project on rigging large trees from forest areas to a new building in an urban location, working with arborists that had prepared the tree for an aerial trip to its new home in a magnificent new building as its courtyard centerpiece.
