SAVE TIME AND MONEY
We are a proven, trustworthy alliance to survey transmission power lines with more than 50 years leading the industry in the North American region.
Helicopter power line patrols offer unparalleled service and cost savings. On average, a lineman on the ground can cover 40 miles of wire in an 8 hour day, while our aerial patrol can cover up to 350 miles.
We specialize in preventative solutions, tailored to fit your budget and needs. We can inspect the condition of many types of infrastructures.
Aerial patrols can also play an integral part in Vegetation Management Programs, by supplying the information needed to implement an effective plan to prevent contact with lines and ensure proper clearances.
As Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Regulations and Standards and North American Reliability Corporation (NERC) Compliance issues for electric power lines increase, aerial patrols continue to be the most reliable solution
