Aero Tech's Fleet
maintained for tip-top performance
Aero Tech owns and operates both helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft. Our fleet of fixed-wing aircraft includes six carded AT-802 Single-Engine Air Tractors (SEATs), a Pilatus PC 6-H4, and a turbine DeHavilland Beaver DCH-2 Mark III. Our fleet of helicopters includes a Bell 412EP, a Bell 212HP, two Bell 407s, and an MD530FF. Our satellite-guided, custom-equipped aircraft are maintained for tip-top performance in demanding aerial spray campaigns, chartered transportation services, and many other special missions.
Our newest fixed-wing is a Pilatus PC 6-H4, a workhorse for our diverse missions in Alaska. The Pilatus is stationed at our Base of Operations in Seldovia, Alaska. With its unique Short Take-Off and Landing (STOL) capabilities, the Pilatus can serve remote areas with very short airstrips. The Pilatus provides dependable performance at high altitudes, responsive maneuverability for flights over rugged terrain, and all-weather reliability for Alaska’s extreme weather conditions.
Our Turbine DeHavilland Beaver DCH-2 Mark III offers impressive carrying capacity, climb rate, and cruise speed. The aircraft is equipped with both amphibious floats and fixed landing gear with tundra tires, making it ideal for both land and water operations. Our Turbine Beaver is stationed at our Alaska Base, where it supports advanced float training and a wide range of our other aviation missions in the state.
Our MD530FF helicopter offers high-speed operational performance and high-altitude capabilities. Equipped with a 650 shp Rolls-Royce 250-C30 engine, the MD530F provides proven reliability even under the demands of hot-day and high-altitude conditions. The helicopter’s long main-rotor blades give the MD 530F its high-altitude lift capability. The extended tailboom and tail rotor blades provide increased thrust and directional control at high altitudes.
Aero Tech’s MD530FF helicopter is certified for FAA part 133 and 135 operations. It is available for wildlife surveys, firefighting, charter service, hauling freight, law enforcement support, and other special missions. Additionally, our helicopter service supports client needs for site monitoring, filming, and photo documentation of fire sites, bug infested areas, or regions that require mapping.
Aero Tech's Bell 212HP aircraft are high-performance tanked helicopters. We use our 212HP helicopters in firefighting, seismic studies, freight hauling, heavy lift operations, construction support, charter services, and emergency disaster relief. Operating under Exclusive Use and Call When Needed (CWN) contracts, our 212HPs support firefighting, mobilization and demobilization of fire crews. The helicopters are used in aerial applications of straw mulch for erosion control and reclamation. The 212HPs can haul up to nine passengers and are equipped with twin engines for dependability and safety.
Our Bell 412EP (Enhanced Performance) is another high-performance helicopter for firefighting and other missions including mobilization and demobilization of fire crews and oil platform crews, charter services, freight hauling, emergency disaster relief, search and rescue, engineering surveys, and long-line services. Aero Tech has equipped the helicopter with PT6T-3DF engines for superior performance.
Our AT-802s are tireless workhorses, ideal for the rapid response aerial campaigns we conduct for clients. The aircraft can carry heavy payloads of water, retardant, insecticide, fertilizer or other chemicals and be loaded and up in the air in less than five minutes. We can fly the AT-802s at high altitudes or close to the ground, efficiently covering areas of rugged, mountain terrain and making precise drops even in difficult conditions.
