Helicopter Fleet & Support Equipment


In Late 2021, PJ Helicopters and Quanta Services made the decision to develop a CH-47 Utility Chinook Heavy-Lift Program. As an industry-leader with the proven UH-60A Utility Hawk Program, we are eager to take the next step with this incredibly diverse and capable airframe. The Chinook’s impressive external load capacity can effectively handle any needs within the utility industry and more. The CH-47D Utility Hook will also be a valuable new asset during the firefighting season. Capable of 26,000lb external loads, and with a +50 year track record this aircraft will change the way utility work is done in our industry.
