Seismic, Oil & Gas

Skyline is primarily a utility Helicopter operation utilizing a fleet of Bell 212HPs and Agusta Westland 119Ke Koala. One of our primary missions involves supporting Oil and Gas exploration in the form of helicopter onshore support of data acquisition (seismic).

Heli-Portable Seismic

“Heli-Portable Seismic” is the movement of seismic equipment and crews. Seismic equipment is moved via a long line attached to the above-mentioned aircraft, while crews are flown separately to support this equipment internally utilizing the same aircraft.

This type of operation over the past two decades has proven to be the safest and most efficient method of conducting seismic operations in remote locations. This form of transportation allows our customers to better utilize their time and better manage their equipment in rough terrain, while minimizing the potential risk to the general public, ground and flight crews, and the environment.

Skyline Helicopters is internationally recognized as one of the premiere heli-portable and seismic helicopter support providers by various Oil and Gas clients throughout the world. Skyline has been involved in Seismic/Data acquisition operations since its inception. It has been working in all facets of seismic from front end through drilling and the recording segments of 2D and 3D programs.
