Hybrid Air Freighters (HAF) and Columbia Helicopters, Inc. (Columbia) have established a teaming partnership to offer high performance and innovative logistical services to the Oil and Gas, Mining and large-scale construction sectors. The partnership will facilitate and manage access of LMH-1 airships to remote areas.
Developed by Lockheed Martin, the LMH-1 provides for the unequalled opportunity to transport freight and personnel at reduced cost and in full compliance with strict environmental standards. No significant ground-based infrastructure is required and the airship can land on all types of surface, hovercraft-style.
HAF will manage the LMH fleet of airships and will offer competitive and sustainable solutions to the Oil and Gas and Mining industries. Columbia, the world’s leader in heavy-lift helicopters, is renowned for its technical expertise in addressing complex environments. As such, Columbia will operate the airships. Both companies will work seamlessly together.
