I am talking about the guys who are transported from helicopter to the actual wires where they work..I am not talking about the lineman who climb up the poles and stuff. Is there a certain name for the type of lineman I am talking about?

In case you don;t know what I'm talking about..Just type in "High Voltage Cable Inspection" on google search and watch the video.

Thanks for any replies.

A lineman is a lineman your journeyman ticket says you can do it all. The helicopter guys are involved in barehand line work.
