Re: Ot 345kv substation walkthrough


Those people are exceptionally nimble and brave, they earn ever penny they get. The greatest danger, however, is probably not the high voltage, but rather the helicopter. Hovering at that low altitude with zero forward speed means a slim chance to clear the power lines, enter autorotation, and make a successful landing if something goes wrong. I have had a few helicopter lessons, and the scariest part is during take off when you have lifted off and don't yet have much forward speed . Low altitude is maintained until you do, but it is still risky.
