Powerline Patrols & Maintenance

MI Helicopters can provide airborne electrical services including powerline patrols, inspection & reporting, rapid response to reported faults and powerline stringing.

Helicopters are an ideal platform for conducting surveys of electrical networks. The flexibility to assess powerlines, assets and vegetation without having to stop for fences, gates and cultivation allows a fast, accurate and cost effective way to manage the thousands of kilometres of powerlines throughout your network.

Our patrols provide you with detailed information and imagery about your network. The ability of the helicopter to hover and view the infrastructure from above is particularly useful when the lines transverse difficult or remote terrain. The use of helicopters also reduces the need to place personnel in high risk environments such as heights or live line work areas until absolutely necessary.
