JCP&L Transmission Vegetation Management Aerial Patrols are projected to start sometime between June 8, 2018 & June 20, 2018. Vegetation Aerial inspections are scheduled covering all transmission facilities system-wide annually. Patrols are intended to identify conditions that may be a threat to the safety and reliability of the transmission system.
Please be advised that Haverfield Aviation will be the helicopter company assisting in the inspections on all JCP&L Transmission Lines. The pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace. The helicopter will be flying at a speed of about 35-40 mph above or alongside the lines and may circle around for a closer inspection. As always, poor weather and emergency patrols/repairs elsewhere may cause re-scheduling and/or delays.
