[ARCHIVED] Chesapeake Bay Helicopters in the area

Chesapeak Bay Helicopters

Due to the recent high-wind storm that moved through FirstEnergy Service Territory this past weekend, and beginning tentatively today, 11/20/2020, or within the next couple of days weather permitting, Chesapeake Bay Helicopters (CBH) will be mobilizing to the Ohio Edison region to begin performing post-wind event patrols to inspect and/or assess any possible wind damage that may have been sustained on select transmission lines 69kV-345kV. These patrols are anticipated to take three to four weeks to complete but as always, all work is strongly weather dependent and inclement weather or post-outage patrols in other areas may prolong completion. The purpose of these follow-up-post-wind patrols is to look for any wind damage that may have been sustained during the recent windstorm where the inspector will be focusing on the structural integrity of the transmission lines and any severe hardware or component damage. The helicopter will be flying at speeds of 30 knots (35mph) but may also be seen hovering or circling to get a better look at any damage that may be found.

The helicopter to be used for the Ohio Edison Region – Blue, Bell 206 Jet Ranger with tail registration number N719CB
