Civil Aviation Services

Erickson, Inc. loves a good challenge. You’ll see our helicopters at the top of skyscrapers, and in the middle of forests. We lift and place massive pieces of equipment with our heavy-lift capabilities. Our work builds towns, protects people and property, and we like to think it makes the world better. If you’ve ever wondered how powerlines are built across a river, canyon, or forest, we can tell you. If you’ve seen HVAC units lifted onto massive warehouses, or fires rapidly doused, then you’ll understand that remote locations, and unusual projects are our specialty.
