Ever imagined what it would be like to fly a helicopter mere feet away from live high-voltage powerlines?

Today on The Helicopter Podcast, Halsey speaks with Brad Isaacs, a utility helicopter pilot and former police pilot. Isaacs shares his insights on the path to becoming a police pilot, as well as what it takes to shift over into the utility side of the industry. 

Tune in to hear Brad share stories of flying MD 500 helicopters in close proximity to powerlines, and what it’s like to communicate with the crews while delivering cargo (and crewmembers!) in such a constrained environment.
