Logistical support for enterprises of the fuel and energy complex of Western Siberia.
Gelix airline provides transportation support to oil companies in Russia. Their crews deliver personnel and supplies to remote regions where oil and gas extraction takes place. This includes fuel, gravel, tools, drilling equipment, industrial chemicals, and much more. The crews working in this sector, including experienced pilots and technical personnel, perform a significant amount of work related to external cargo operations. Since oil companies primarily operate on rotational shifts for their personnel, the crews also adhere to such a work schedule. They live alongside the company's personnel in the tundra and forest-tundra conditions, witnessing sunrises, sunsets, and enjoying the harsh Siberian nature.
Search and rescue support
Air transport plays an important role in search and rescue operations. The elimination of the consequences of man-made disasters also involves the use of aviation equipment. The most in-demand aircraft in search and rescue operations is the Mi-8T. Its spacious cabin allows not only for rescuers and necessary equipment to be on board but also for the evacuation of the wounded, providing patient care during transportation with the use of life-saving equipment. Gelix airline conducts search and rescue operations in Perm, Chelyabinsk, and Yekaterinburg. The airline's area of responsibility covers the territory of the Urals. The crew is ready to carry out search and rescue operations within 30 minutes of the alarm signal being announced during the summer period and within 45 minutes during the winter time. To maintain a high quality of work, the crews regularly participate in training events.
Organization and execution of tourist flights to the Northern Urals
Helicopter tourism is one of the few ways to visit remote areas of the Subpolar Urals. In 2021, Gelix Airlines became the only operator to open tours to the Manpupuner Plateau under the conditions of pandemic restrictions. This plateau is often referred to as the most inaccessible wonder of Russia. The distance from Manpupuner to the nearest settlements is over 200 km. A flight to Manpupuner also involves a scenic journey over the taiga forests of the Komi Republic, which are the largest untouched forests by human activity and are designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Gelix Airlines complies with Russian and international safety standards for passenger air transportation, fulfills its responsibilities for aircraft maintenance, monitors crew rest schedules, ensures their qualifications, and much more. Flights are conducted on request and as tourist groups are formed.
Transportation of oversized and consolidated cargo
Air transport is one of the fastest and safest methods for delivering perishable, particularly valuable, and urgent cargo. The Gelix airline performs the transportation of oversized and consolidated cargo using Il-76TD aircraft. We transport pipes and other equipment for the oil and gas industry, medical equipment, food products, machinery, and helicopters. Cargo transportation is carried out both within Russia and internationally. The advantage of the Il-76TD lies in its design feature, allowing for quick loading and unloading. The cargo ramp serves as both a loading ramp and an entry ramp for vehicles.
