We were able to start flying around 4 p.m. yesterday. The weather was cold but clear. The high yesterday was 35 with the low last night of 13. We are going to finish up today starting in about 30 minutes.
Someone asked about the helicopter and why we don't use a local outfit? We need a helicopter that will carry heavy loads. This usually means a construction helicopter. This year the chopper is an AS332 Super Puma. It can carry close to 6000 lbs.
Sorry to be so brief today, it is time to fly.
