Take Flight! How to Charter a Bering Air Helicopter
Looking to charter a flight to your remote site operation or go on an Alaskan flightseeing tour? Our helicopters serve multiple agencies, businesses and individuals each year. Here’s how you can charter a Bering Air helicopter for your next wilderness expedition.
Remote Site Operations
Alaska’s wilderness provides ample opportunities for field surveys and environmental studies. These remote site operations typically take place in areas of Alaska that cannot be accessed by fixed-wing aircraft. If you’re working in the field, our AMD/OAS-qualified pilots and helicopters can safely fly your team to your exploration destination.
Plus, Bering Air can transport everything you need to your camp. If it can’t fit inside the helicopter, chances are, we can still move it! Our sling equipment can haul 4-wheelers, snowmobiles, generators, tent frames, bulk fuel – and even your refrigerator!
Each helicopter in our fleet is flown by a single pilot and has room for up to 3 passengers. Leather seats and headsets afford a comfortable ride to your destination. Under seat stowage allows room for small backpacks and gear.
- MD Helicopters MD500E: This light utility helicopter has proven reliability in the field hauling passengers and cargo to remote sites. It’s certified with generous external load lifting capability. We have three aircraft in the fleet, each capable of carrying three passengers or 800 pounds of gear inside. This helicopter has an external sling load lifting capability of 1200 lbs.
- Robinson R44 Raven II: This economical helicopter has proven reliability in the field hauling passengers and cargo to remote sites. It’s capable of sling, basket and pod external loads. We have three aircraft in the fleet. Each helicopter is capable of carrying three passengers and loads up to 700 pounds using the cabin, slings, baskets and pods.
Helicopter requests are highest during the summer months, as there are lots of surveys and studies to be completed once things thaw out. Interested in learning more about chartering us for remote site operations? Check out our Helicopters page for details.
