EQUIPMENT, TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION
Rotor Solutions are always sourcing new ideas and technologies to ensure precision and safety.
Safety is always at the front of any operation at Rotor Solutions and a management promise to staff and customers. As part of this, each aircraft is fitted with GPS tracking to ensure pilot and customer safety at all times. Tracplus units offer real time tracking, with complete fleet situational awareness and the Automatic Monitoring Service (AMS) offers extra peace of mind.
The most up to date swivel hooks and the Onboard Systems cargo hooks allow for safe utility work, including lifting and fire operations.
Helicopter spraying is the core of the business and Rotor Solutions state of the art equipment compliments the skill and competence of pilots assuring precision application. Rotor Solutions utilises the smart and complete Tabula Aviation GPS system with its advanced aerial guidance system.
Combined with the online platform, the cloud based system allows customers to map and mark out application areas, then provides assured proof of placement with maps delivered straight back to the cloud platform after completion.
For added safety, Tabula has an inbuilt powerline warning system for extra pilot safety, giving peace of mind knowing the pilot has the safest tools for the task. Tabula delivers real time coverage, allowing more than one aircraft to work on a task, combined with office based tracking of flight lines. All this making it the ultimate agricultural GPS.
For almost all operations the aircraft are supported by a mobile ground support crew member or team. Whether it be helicopter spraying, firefighting or powerline patrolling, fuel and mixing requirements come from the ground support team and their specially designed load vehicle.
Each Rotor Solutions vehicle is Dangerous Goods registered and can transport over 3000LT of aircraft fuel.
