JCP&L has announced that an outside company, The Haverfield Corp., will be performing Comprehensive Visual Inspections (CVI’s) on JCP&L’s 230kV transmission lines starting January 4, 2016 in the JCP&L Region. The CVI’s are conducted via helicopters.

The CVI patrols on these lines are expected to take 3 to 4 weeks for completion and are therefore expected to be complete by the end of January, weather permitting.  The CVI patrols are a slow-speed, close-up, detailed inspection of the lines and hardware. The helicopter will be flying slowly (approximately 10 mph) along the lines and will often hover and/or circle for a close inspection of the facilities, particularly at the individual structure locations.

The flight crew provides information on their daily location to both Transmission Lines Maintenance and the FCC, and the pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace.

The helicopter scheduled for these patrols is Black with red lettering, MD 500 with registration (tail) number N8330P.  Please see attached photo for details.
