    NOT a Black Hawk HC. They must have done a freebie to get business. Their rates can't can't compete with grunt crew labor. The cheapest hr. rate I got with a Llama $2500/ hr. and it's been years. Our geniuses tried to fly distribution for annual line patrols. That was the last time. Couldn't see anything at the speeds necessary to justify the rates. Just fing stupid.

    We flew all our poles on our current project with a heli. Dont know the cost, but it was the only way to get them to the locations. But yeah, didnt need a heli for those pots... Hell, get 2 linemen, a grunt, and a capstan hoist. Done deal!
