Andrew Mills, Vice President of Global Business Development said, "We are delighted to return to the Malaysia market, which we have served for over 20 years. Timber harvesting is the industry that Erickson was founded on 45 years ago and it remains a core capability in our portfolio. This joint contract provides a continued link to the Malaysia market and further expands our focus on filling the schedule of our Aircrane fleet."The Erickson S-64 Aircrane is a premier heavy-lift precision helicopter that features an aft-facing pilot seat, providing unique and specialized lift and placement capabilities across a variety of platforms to include construction, HVAC installations, transmission powerline installations, and infrastructure projects ranging from dams to gas lines to waterlines. The heavy lift capability coupled with the benefits of flying where there is no road, river, rail or runway access, allows Erickson to provide services that cannot be performed via traditional lift functions from the ground. Erickson is the FAA Type Certificate holder and manufacturer of the Aircrane helicopter.
