Helicopters are an efficient and environmentally friendly tool for seismic work. Using a helicopter equipped with Airborne Electromagnetic (AEM) survey technology can maximize your rate of data collection, while also minimizing the environmental footprint of the operation by leaving the soil and vegetation untouched. In the past Phoenix Heli-Flight has flown both the torpedo and the hoop style of AEM equipment. Phoenix has also completed surveying operations involving the deployment and retrieval of seismic bags. Look no further than Phoenix Heli-Flight when planning your next seismic project.
