Heli Austria welcomes Superlifter contribution to all-round capability
Heli Austria is bringing a BO105 LS A3 Superlifter into service.

Heli Austria is bringing a BO105 LS A3 Superlifter into service. Roy Knaus, ceo, says: "We will use it for all kinds of twin-engine work including passengers and aerial and also for construction flights in cities.

"The hook is rated for 1,350 kg and the maximum gross from the Superlifter is 2,850 kg. Also, flying in hostile environments, this is a twin-engine aircraft that outperforms any single, such as an AS 350 B3, at altitude."

Heli Austria's fleet now includes two Bell Super 204Bs, four AS350s, five AS355s, an MD 520N and an MD 902 Explorer.

The company, which has bases at St Johann Pongau, Heliport Karres, Imst, Hochgurgl and Saalbach-Hinterglemm, specialises in a wide range of operations including passenger, freight and air ambulance/medevac. It also provides survey and surveillance, photography and film, aerial works, fire and sightseeing and leisure services.
