[ARCHIVED] JCP&L PreFlight Notification-January 20, 2023


Please be advised that beginning on or about 1/20/2023, weather permitting, Chesapeake Bay Helicopters will be mobilizing to the JCPL region to begin performing comprehensive visual inspections (CVIs) on all JCPL 500kV and 230kV lines. These inspections are expected to take approximately six weeks to complete, however, any storm or outage-related patrols could prolong completion. The helicopter to be used is as follows: White w/black and red stripes, Hughes MD500 with red tail registration number N717MA.

A comprehensive visual inspection (CVI) 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 line(s). The helicopter will be moving very slowly along each of the transmission lines and will often be seen hovering while carrying out these inspections.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any further questions.
