Illuminating Company to Begin Post-Wind Event Helicopter Patrols NEW

On Monday, 3/18, or Tuesday, 3/19, weather permitting, HeloAir will be mobilizing to The Illuminating Company region and begin performing post-wind event patrols on all 345kV and 138kV transmission lines due to the recent high-wind weather events. Completion of these patrols is expected to take approximately two weeks but as always, inclement weather or post-outage patrols in other regions could prolong completion. The helicopter being used for these patrols will be as follows:

701HA

Blue and White, Bell 206 Jet Ranger with tail blue registration number, N701HA.

The inspector onboard the helicopter will be getting an overall look at the transmission line, right-of-way, structures, and all associated hardware where the focus of the patrol is to look for any obvious/outstanding maintenance conditions. They will fly around 30-35mph, but the helicopter may be seen hovering or circling structures or spans of a transmission line to get a better look at any conditions found during the patrol(s).

It should be noted that the contractor has been authorized to patrol the transmission circuits in their entirety (i.e. “breaker-to-breaker”), so patrols on certain lines may therefore extend into the neighboring regions. The pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace.
