I used to do that in Indonesia with a Bell 204B, moving small diamond drilling rigs.
Lower hook loads meant the rig had to be broken down into more loads, 4 skid channels dug into the ground, 4 hydraulic jacks that sat on the skids, a rig frame that sat on the jacks and then the engine and the rig mast that bolted onto the frame.
As we arrived at the new site with the loads in the right order, we built the rig up by placing the loads on the previously placed components. The final load was to hover the rig mast into a horizontal position above the frame so the pivot bolts could be inserted to raise it to the vertical.
Shortest rig move was 25 minutes from one side of a river to the other. Longest move was about three days over 40 miles. The skid channels were a pig to fly; max. 30 knot if you didn't want to see them level with your eyes on each side of the aircraft.

It is better to stop first and then land than to land first and then desperately try to stop before running out of runway, brake pads and ideas.

Hi, I glad this came up to the top again. Nice vid.
So.. why do some helicopters do long lines and short lines? What is the advantage or disadvantage? In FSX, it sure seems like the long lines like to swing more easily. Anyone else?
Thanks
Brad

The only reason we had to use a short line is the helicopter company wouldn't allow a bubble window for the pilot.  They mounted a mirror on the front of the skid that showed the line hook at the belly of the helicopter and the whole line an load so the pilot could see the load.

    When working in the rockies we used lama's and we used 100 to 125' long lines.
