On Saturday May 19th NSR HETS members drove out to Hope to re-certify with Valley Helicopters on Class D Heli Ops (HETS, or HFRS).
Brad (the pilot) reviewed the nuances of the 407 chopper, including stretcher loading, operating guidelines, capacity etc. NSR HETS members then rigged the chopper for the long-line exercise and did 3 evolutions on the line.
Thank you to Brad and Valley Helicopters.
