Heavy helicopters are also used to support search and rescue operations.

Light helicopters, which may have single or twin engines and a typical passenger capacity of five to nine, are used to support a wide range of activities, including the shallow water oil and gas industry, the mining industry, power line and pipeline surveying, air medical services, tourism and corporate uses. The Company's helicopters are primarily used to transport personnel to, from and between offshore installations, drilling rigs and platforms. The primary users of its helicopter services are integrated and independent oil and gas companies, including Anadarko Petroleum Corporation ("Anadarko"), Shell Exploration and Production Company (Shell), Exxon Mobil Global Services Co., and Petrobras America Inc. (Petrobras America), and the U.S. government. In addition to serving the oil and gas industry, the Company provides helicopters under dry-lease, air medical services, firefighting support and Alaska flightseeing tours, among other activities. The Company provides helicopters under contracts ranging from dry-leases, where only the helicopter is provided, to contracts providing full service operational support.
