Maximizing Fleet Performance for One of the World’s Largest Heavy-Lift Helicopter Companies

About the Client

Columbia Helicopters, Inc. is a global operator of heavy-lift helicopters and also provides maintenance support for commercial and military customers around the world. With equipment spread out from Papua New Guinea to South America, Columbia Helicopters is the first successful helicopter logging company and logs more timber than any other company.

The Challenge

Managing a fleet of nearly 2,000 pieces of equipment that support 30 aircraft is no easy task. Columbia Helicopters needed a flexible software solution to support their diverse fleet and the many details of their fleet operation.

The Solution

Since implementing a fleet management software solution, Columbia Helicopters has increased efficiency and maximized fleet performance. Now that all fleet info is in one database, they can easily see where equipment is operating and better organize upcoming preventative maintenance, inspections, and equipment rotations.

Columbia Helicopters has been able to grow and continue to maintain their place as the leading provider of lift services throughout the world.

Solution Features
