You get to fly on a helicopter
Helicopter Lineman (Current Employee) – Gettysburg, PA – July 20, 2016
As far as powerline work from a helicopter goes Haverfield is the safest place to work. the work is enjoyable, the workers out in the field are mostly easy to get along with. my issues arise the chiefs in the office. they go through dry spells where there is no work for months, and unless you have a friend in the office you may be sitting at home for those months. scheduling is a major problem, it will be hard on your family if they aren't used to you being gone for long periods of time. it definitely helps if you are single. also not knowing when you're going back out to work is stressful in itself. helps if you are a journyman lineman, have your class A CDL, and have had previous helicopter experience.
