Q and A

How high do you fly?

Due to the sensitivity increase of our new system, we fly 200 to 500’ above the ground. We have found a leak the size of a bic lighter from 700 ft !

How fast do you fly?

The helicopters fly at 60-80 mph during surveys.

Why is this system superior?

Reflective lasers, infrared and ultraviolet detection systems may get false readings from environmental factors that do not affect our laser.

Is this new technology?

No, this is proven technology. It has been used in many parts of the world, including Canada and the Middle East for more than a decade. Colorado Heliops is making this technology availabl in the USA.

What is your safety record?

We take pride in our safety record. Our Pilots and Mechanics are factory trained by Bell Helicopters. We maintain the highest safety standards. We have never had an accident or incident whilst flying a pipeline survey.

Can we ride along during the survey?

Due to limited space with monitoring equipment and computers, as well as long flights, ride alongs are not recommended but can be accommodated.

Can it detect molecules other than methane ?

Yes, the laser detects, CH4, HF, H2S, NH3, CO2, CO, HCN AND HCI.
