Aerial construction has many advantages over the use of crane services, both in manpower savings and bottom line costs.


Utilizing a helicopter eliminates the setup and tear down costs of employing a conventional crane. Helicopters enable contractors to work quickly and safely around conveyors, air conditioning housings, chillers, towers, etc. The traditional problems of cranes not having enough 'boom' to reach into expansive rooftops are no longer an issue.






National Helicopters is one of the largest helicopter operators in Eastern Canada having performed aerial lift work on many buildings in the Greater Toronto Area including City Hall, Queens Park, Eaton Centre, Yorkdale and Square One Malls, Ford and Honda Plants, Blue Mountain ski lifts and numerous apartment/condominium complexes. National has received several Transport Canada and Aviation safety awards in performing over 40,000 incident and accident free flight hours.


  • Fastest most efficient means of construction
  • Cut costs from 50% to 70% time saving
  • Crane setup times not required
  • Significant reduction in labour man-hours
  • Ease of operation
  • Specializing in setting roof units quickly and economically

This service was provided for the York and Durham Regional Police Services in a ground breaking, six month joint operation in 1999. Following a very successful trial period within both services, Durham Regional Police chose to continue utilization of "Air 1" for it's positive results in crime fighting. In 2003, National Helicopters was again chosen to provide service for the York Regional Police Air Support Unit's "Air 2".

👍👍We had a very good experience with them. The ground crew and staff are very nice. The pilot is really good providing a very stable flight from beginning to end of the trip. Also they offer a better deal by providing a longer flight time compared to the competition. The drive going there was quite nice seeing all the vineyards around the area. I totally recommend them for a one in lifetime experience because the view of Niagara falls they provide is awesome.
