Please be advised that on May 31st, 2022, weather permitting, FirstEnergy Flight Ops will be mobilizing to Summit County to conduct annual vegetation management aerial patrols. Vegetation aerial patrols are intended to identify conditions that may be a threat to the safety and reliability of the transmission system. The helicopter will be flying at a speed of about 35-40 mph above or alongside the lines and may circle around for a closer inspection. The pilot will be in communication with any local Airports, when in their airspace. As always, poor weather and emergency patrols/repairs elsewhere may cause re-scheduling and/or delays. The Helicopter will be a blue & white, Bell 429 w/tail registration number N32FE.
