Wildlife Surveillance

At MN Helicopters we have a deep appreciation for the wildlife in the Upper Midwest. Therefore, we utilize helicopters for helping different agencies survey wildlife populations in the area. Although it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact population of any species, wildlife surveillance gives us an overall picture of the size of the population and where the wildlife is growing in Minnesota. Helicopters are especially useful for surveying big animals such as deer. Contact us today to schedule a surveillance flight for your agency.

Power Line Surveillance

Monitoring power lines in Minnesota can be quite challenging due to the rugged Minnesota terrain, thick woods, and numerous lakes. Thus, a helicopter provides an efficient and safe alternative to ground monitoring. From the air we can help your company assess and document the condition of power lines, poles, and related equipment around the Upper Midwest. We can get close enough to the power lines so that you can make an accurate inspection.

Aerial Pipeline Patrol

You never know when a pipeline will leak. When it happens, it can be disastrous and take days to fix. One of the ways we can help your agency is with through pipeline patrol and leak prevention. Just like power lines, you can accurately and efficiently evaluate the condition of equipment anywhere along the pipeline. Aerial patrol allows you to survey the pipes, detect leaks, and warn nearby residents and businesses of any potential disasters.
