Applebee Aviation Rolling Stock
Although Applebee Aviation Inc. is a Helicopter Service there is much more than just helicopters needed to provide the services we offer. Support vehicles are an important part in the operations we perform and that is why we have built the largest fleet of state-of-the-art, purpose-built support vehicles in the region. With the high operating costs of helicopters efficiency is the key factor in completing any project on time and on budget. The amount of work a helicopter can do in a short period of time is impressive to say the least and makes it impossible for just one support vehicle to keep up in many situations. Keeping the rotor blades spinning is vital to the overall success of many projects and that is why Applebee Aviation is ready to deploy as many support vehicles as necessary to meet their customers’ needs.
