O’Brien Helicopters is FAA Part 135 Certificated Company which allows us to perform a wide-range of charter functions from air taxi to land development scouting flights.

Aerial Surveying & Scouting

Land surveys by helicopter provide a safe, comfortable way to view potential land purchases. Aerial photography provides perspective during review and consideration. Remote estates and large construction projects often require a unique aerial perspective for buyers and sellers. Ongoing and future construction projects can be reviewed with ease.

Powerline/Pipeline Patrol

Aerial patrolling is a cost efficient method to rapidly cover broad areas of remote power and pipeline assets. We survey with a client observer or via filming for review. For companies who need information to manage their energy transfer systems we can partner to assist in the documentation of proposed routes, recognition of potential right-of-way encroachments or identifying transmission lines that need repair.

Multimedia Aerial Services

O’Brien Helicopters provides complete aerial filming for music videos, television & more, with confidence & knowledge that comes from years of being in business. We’ve worked with many notable personalities, including Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Ludacris and more.
