Solution

The Hill Group knew airlifting was the only option for completing this project in a safe, efficient, and cost-effective manner. Working previously with Erickson on other projects, they knew who to call to get the job done. By taking advantage of the S-64 lift capacity, The Hill Group saved valuable time. Five aerial lifts were completed in just 1.3 hours of flight time, saving The Hill Group several weeks of time compared with other methods.
