Oversized Helicopter Transport

Oversized Helicopter Transport across North America

Oversized Helicopter Transport is a niche vertical market related to the oversize cargo shipping industry. While all oversize cargo must be handled with care and attention to detail, oversized Helicopter Transport requires an in-depth knowledge of the aircraft in order to minimize the risk of damage to the cargo.

There are a number of helicopters that we would consider to be “oversized,” which to us means they will not fit inside one of our completely enclosed Helicopter Transport Trailers.

Some of these helicopters include:

  • Sikorsky S-61
  • Sikorsky S-70
  • Sikorsky S-92
  • AS 330 Puma & AS 332 SuperPuma
  • Chinook
  • AW 139
  • AW 189

Oversized Helicopter Transport Trailers

IMTUSA uses expandable double-drop (low-bed or low-boy) trailers that allow us to handle helicopters that are taller than 10’ when on the ground. The low part of the trailer (or well) is 29’ when collapsed and 50’ when fully expanded.

The trailer itself is 48’-53' long when collapsed and 70’ when fully expanded. Our trailers are custom-designed to remove the camber, which allows IMTUSA to ship over height helicopters in areas of North America that are highly restrictive of over-height shipments.

In addition to our custom low-bed trailers, IMTUSA has developed a full line of landing gear cradles for larger aircraft that sit on wheels. For oversized skid-gear aircraft, our trailer feature out-riggers to extend the trailer width to fully support the weight of the aircraft. 

You can trust all of your oversized helicopter transport needs with IMTUSA, secure in the knowledge you will receive the best equipment and most experienced drivers available.

Military Helicopter Transport

In addition to commercial helicopters, IMTUSA specializes in transporting large oversized military aircraft as well.

IMTUSA has developed a custom transport system for the UH-60 Black Hawk (and variants). We use a low-bed expandable trailer along with a main landing gear wheel cradle and jack stands built using the US military transport manual for the UH-60. In addition, we use a custom blade box support system so we can secure the blades, horizontal stabilizer and the fuselage on the same trailer.

IMT also has extensive experience transporting the following military helicopter types:

  • UH-60 Blackhawk
  • UH-1 Huey
  • SH-60 Seahawk
  • CH-47 Chinook
  • AH-1H Cobra
