High profile operation in Gabon for our client Heli-Union!

Helicopter operations require thorough preparation.

TLC provided destination services in Gabon to its client Heli-Union, whose helicopter, the specific Sikorsky model, arrived from Europe at the Heli-Union hangar at Port-Gentil airport.

TLC’s smooth management of the operation involved:

  • Import formalities of the aircraft in Libreville
  • Offloading of the aircraft in the port of Libreville, under the supervision of TLC and the client
  • Loading of the aircraft on low-bed trailer with transfer to the barge sailing to Port-Gentil
  • Upon arrival in Port-Gentil, offloading of the aircraft and transfer on lowbed by our partner Peschaud and transportation to the Heli-Union workshop, located within the Port-Gentil airport area.

The aircraft arrived safely at destination, catching the attention of all during its journey on the ground!

Key Success Factors:

  • Flawless co-operation and communication with all parties involved (client, partner, liner agent, …) to minimize risks
  • Adequate operation preparation and follow-up
  • Staff mobilisation in Libreville and Port Gentil
