Illuminating Co. Helicopter Inspections


Please be advised that on approximately 1/20/2023, weather permitting, Chesapeake Bay Helicopters will be mobilizing to The Illuminating Company region to begin performing comprehensive visual inspections on all Illuminating Company 138kV lines. These inspections are expected to take approximately 5 to 6 weeks to complete, however, any storm or outage-related patrols could prolong completion. A comprehensive visual inspection is a slow, structure-by-structure, span-by-span inspection where the inspector onboard the helicopter gets a thorough look from top to bottom of each structure, associated hardware, and conductors of the transmission lines. The helicopter will be moving very slowly along each of the transmission lines and will often be seen hovering while carrying out these inspections.
