MD 500 in flight

West Coast Helicopters has discovered the perfect recipe for safe and successful shake block extraction.

We start with a workhorse of a helicopter; MD500D. We add a strong dose of experienced maintenance to carefully work that helicopter over in the evening and have it ready to go in the morning and finally we add the “piece de resistance”; a pilot with 20,000 plus hours, mostly on helicopters, mostly on the longline and who loves to fly shake blocks.

We mix it together with a safety brief and solid work ethic and there you have it; shake block work you can count on not to drive a hole in your pocket book.
