#1 Mountain Rescue

HeliAlaska Dusty Snowmobile recovery

In January 2020, HeliAlaska was faced with a daunting task: to recover a snowmobile stranded in the wilds of Alaska. Fortunately, the pilot, Dusty Little, was up to the challenge and managed to locate and recover the snowmobile, even in the face of treacherous terrain and unpredictable weather conditions.

The snowmobile had been stranded on a steep mountain slope after the driver had taken a wrong turn off-trail. Such a remote snowmobile recovery mission would have been impossible without the expertise and reliable equipment provided by the team at HeliAlaska. This serves as a reminder of the importance of experienced pilots and dependable equipment, and how the right people and tools can make a difficult mission possible.

#2 Ravine Recovery

Recently, HeliAlaska successfully completed a remarkable snowmobile recovery from a ravine. Robert Kozakiewicz was the pilot tasked with retrieving the snowmobile, and he managed to do so with incredible skill and precision. To successfully complete the mission, he had to land the helicopter in an area near the snowmobile and then use a long line to bring the snowmachine back to solid ground.

Without the expertise of Robert and the HeliAlaska team, this recovery mission would have been unachievable. This serves as a reminder of the potential risks of operating snowmobiles in remote, treacherous conditions such as ravines.
