Don't Let Heights Get You Down — Canadian Air-Crane can
transport your construction projects to the top.
Speed and efficiency are vital when transporting and installing
ski lift towers. Our Erickson S-64 Aircrane is known for its
impressive lift capacity - even at high elevations. With decades
of experience in the industry, remarkable piloting skill,
massive lift capacity, and quick, precise placement, Canadian
Air-Crane's average time per lift is as low as seven minutes.
We can transport an entire tower/cross-arm structure up to
the set site and keep it stationary and level while workmen
accomplish the bolt-down. When altitude and temperature restrict
the helicopter's lift capacity, our operations team can assist
in the design and planning process to separate the towers
into safe working loads that can be reassembled efficiently
and securely at the set site.
Canadian Air-Crane participated in the installation of the
Mt. Roberts Tramway, which stretches 1,800 feet (~549 m) and
weighs more than 1,000 tons. The tramway is cantilevered off
a cliff face near the top of the mountain. In some areas,
the overall slope angle is greater than 60 degrees.
The treacherous terrain and remote locations of many tramways
makes installation a challenge. The tremendous lift capacity
of our Erickson S-64 Aircrane and our patented anti-rotation
rigging system combine for the ideal construction crane system
in areas that may be inaccessible to land-based construction
Canadian Air-Crane has experience with tramway construction
throughout the Pacific Northwest - from the Silver Mountain
Gondola Tramway in Silver Valley, Idaho, to the Heavenly Valley
Tramway near the southeast corner of Lake Tahoe, to the Mt.
Roberts Tramway near Juneau, Alaska.
