We’ve been doing quite a bit of helicopter work around the country.  It really is one of my favorite things to get to do in this job.  Sometimes it’s downright scary, but when you have the right pilot, the experience really can be amazing.

When we are local, we pretty much always fly with my buddy Steven Boatwright’s outfit Blue Hill Helicopters. Blue Hill Helicopters has several Schweizer 300’s, as well as a Robinson R44.  These are a much different platform to work from than say a Jet Ranger or a TwinStar, but have their unique advantages.  (If you want to read a bit more about a what goes into a photo flight, or why we choose a particular aircraft, this is a good blog post.)

Above is a short “Behind the Scenes” film from one of our heli-adventures from the fall with Blue Hill Helicopters.
