HeavyLift offers the specialist HeliLift service for helicopter transport.
Heavylift has the capacity to lift several helicopters at a time in the Shorts SC.5 Belfast, all but the largest without rotor head disassembly.
Because the Belfast's aft area is more than 4m tall, many helicopters can be transported without the need for rotor head removal.
The Belfast lifted four large Iroquois helicopters two at a time from Honiara in the Solomons to RAAF Amberley outside Brisbane, returning the Australian Army Bell UH-1Hs that were detached to the island for the recent policing mission.
Such a mission would normally be carried out by a Hercules.
The Belfast demonstrated its distinct economical advantage over the Hercules which can only carry one Iroquois at a time compared to the two in the Belfast.
It has also lifted two Blackhawks to East Timor in a single sortie and is the only aircraft in the region with this capability.
