Flex Air Aviation’s Chartered Aircraft for All Types of Surveying

Helicopter aerial surveying or aerial mapping, is often used in the construction as well as oil and gas industry to triangulate or identify specific points on the ground. However, while there are various methods and there are different types of surveying most of them will eventually require a bird’s eye view of the location. Depending on the kind of equipment, the distance that needs to be covered and the type of terrain a land surveyor or a company may require a helicopter to view it. At Flex Air Aviation, we can provide your business with access to the right type of Aerial Surveying Helicopter, depending on what you need. We can also help carry equipment to the designated location which cuts the time it would otherwise take for it to reach.

Charter a Helicopter for Your Surveying Project

Flex Air Aviation makes it very easy for businesses in the construction or oil & gas industry to charter Helicopter Aerial Surveying for areas of any size. Businesses can also book a helicopter flight at regular intervals that way the aircraft will be on standby at the designated time and location. We can also help businesses determine the right size and type of helicopter that will work best for them. That being said, as aviation experts we are aware of the fact that all helicopters are different in terms of their fuel capacity, speed and altitude capabilities.

Flex Air Aviation currently has access to a fleet of various types of helicopters through our ever growing affiliate network. Not only are their helicopters to be used to transport equipment and personnel but they can also fly round trips and hover which make it easy for surveyors to inspect the areas they are most interested in. Even if you’re not sure about the type of Aerial Surveying Helicopter that will work best for your business, we can help you choose the right one. In addition, you can also book a helicopter charter to fly scheduled flights each week or daily which ensures that an aircraft is always fueled and ready to go.

Popular Types of Helicopter Aerial Surveying

Construction Site Inspections

Drones and helicopters can provide real-time updates on progress, helping to keep projects on schedule. They can also identify potential safety issues, such as unstable structures or unsafe working conditions, helping to prevent accidents. With thermal cameras, UAV technology and the best and most advanced graphing software in the business, taking a look at your progress or mapping the area prior to breaking ground is easier than ever with these surveys. Unlike the traditional way, using construction staking and a ground surveyor, aerial surveys are done with the best view of the entire area and digital staking which makes visualization and design simpler.

Infrastructure Inspections

Inspecting infrastructure like power lines, pipelines, or bridges can be dangerous and time-consuming. Helicopters and drones can safely access these structures and provide high-resolution imagery to identify any damage or potential issues. Thermal imaging can detect heat signatures, indicating electrical faults in power lines or leaks in pipelines. Regular aerial inspections can prevent catastrophic failures, reduce maintenance costs, and ensure the safety and reliability of critical infrastructure.

Helicopter Aerial Surveying - Geographic Surveys

Geological Surveys

Geological surveys involve the study of the Earth's surface and subsurface. Helicopters and drones equipped with sensors such as magnetometers, spectrometers, or radar can detect variations in the Earth's magnetic field, radiation levels, or subsurface structures, which can indicate the presence of mineral deposits or oil and gas reserves. They can also be used to create detailed 3D maps of geological formations, which can aid in understanding geological processes and hazards. Not only can this be used to further knowledge for seismology, geology, but also land maintenance as well. 
Helicopter Aerial Surveying - Wildlife Surveys

Wildlife Surveys

Wildlife surveys often involve tracking animal populations and movements. Drones and helicopters can be equipped with high-resolution cameras or thermal imaging to detect and monitor animals from a distance, minimizing disturbance. This can be particularly useful for studying endangered species, tracking migration patterns, or monitoring the health of wildlife populations. Wildlife Surveys aren’t only for land based animals. If you are looking for tracking and graphs for manatee migration or to track the dispersion of tagged whales over the pacific, we can also take aerial surveys over the Ocean as well.


Archaeologists can use drones to create high-resolution maps of archaeological sites, aiding in planning excavations and preserving the sites. Drones can also monitor the sites over time for any changes due to erosion or human activity. This non-invasive method of surveying can protect archaeological sites from damage and provide a wealth of data for understanding historical civilizations. It can also help in detecting and documenting new archaeological sites.

Real Estate and Land Surveys

In real estate, drones can provide stunning aerial views of properties, giving potential buyers a comprehensive understanding of the property and its surroundings. For land surveys, drones can create detailed topographical maps, which are essential for planning construction, assessing land value, and resolving property disputes. This technology can significantly improve the efficiency and accuracy of land surveys and real estate marketing.

Agricultural Monitoring

Drones and helicopters equipped with multispectral sensors can capture data beyond what the human eye can see, such as infrared light, which can indicate plant health. This can help farmers identify areas of stress in crops due to pests, diseases, or inadequate irrigation. Helicopters and drones can also be used to create detailed topographical maps for planning irrigation systems or monitoring soil erosion. With the capability to to view an entire farm or field, determine over watering or fertilization success and see if there are any mechanical issues with farming equipment, it’s no wonder Agricultural Surveys are growing in popularity.

Environmental Monitoring

Environmental monitoring involves tracking changes in the environment over time. Drones and helicopters  can monitor deforestation, changes in water bodies due to pollution or climate change, or the impact of human activity on natural habitats. They can provide regular, up-to-date data for environmental scientists and policymakers, aiding in the development of effective environmental policies and conservation strategies. Helicopters and drones can also help raising public awareness about environmental issues by capturing compelling images of environmental changes.

Disaster Assessment

After a natural disaster such as a flood, earthquake, or hurricane, helicopters and drones can quickly survey the affected area to assess the damage and identify areas in need of immediate assistance. They can also help in mapping the affected areas for recovery planning, and monitor the recovery process over time. This rapid, comprehensive assessment can save lives, speed up recovery efforts, and provide valuable data for improving disaster management strategies.

Search and Rescue Operations

In search and rescue operations, helicopters and drones can provide aerial views to locate missing persons or assess the safety of an area before ground teams are sent in. They can cover large areas quickly, and can be equipped with thermal imaging to detect people in low visibility conditions. This can significantly speed up search and rescue operations and increase the chances of finding missing persons alive. In addition, drones can deliver supplies to people in inaccessible areas until rescue teams can reach them.
