High Arctic Work

Helicopter landing

We have worked for a variety of customers in the High Arctic including the National Science Foundation on a USCG ice breaker. Typical missions take us from the northern Bering Sea to 500 miles north of Point Barrow. We have the ability to track and communicate at all times with our aircraft using Satellite Com/Nav which creates a safe environment for our customers and crew.

Western Aleutians

We support a variety of customers including the Alaska Volcano Observatory, as far west as Shemya in the Western Aleutians.  Our 86 foot vessel the "Maritime Maid" makes an ideal base of operations providing fuel, personnel transport, quarters, communications and other services required in this demanding remote area.  Our pilots and vessel crews are highly experienced in working with the demands of the Aleutian weather.
