Helicopter Pilot Jobs Tree Sawing In The MD 500. From Kenny Keller Creator Of Helicopter Online Ground School and Author of the Amazon Best Seller Helicopter Check Ride.

I had the privilege to go see one of my former students that started out with me over ten years ago, as a new kid right out of high school. Now he's a helicopter tree saw pilot. I spent two days watching him and his partner work the operation, the helicopter tree sawing and it was absolutely amazing. These guys work awesome together as a team. They work a crazy schedule, twenty-eight days, twenty-eight days off. They work really hard while they are away from their families and then they get a break and get to go home for twenty-eight days.

This is an absolute amazing helicopter pilot job. I've been in and around helicopters for twenty years and I was completely and entirely amazed by this operation. The tree saw hangs below the helicopter from a aluminium tube. The tube basically just is a carry mount for the saw. The saw itself has a gas motor that drives the saws with a belt.

The pilot operates the saw from inside the helicopter. He can start the unit, get the blade spinning and get them up to RPM. He can also turn the saw in relation to the helicopter depending on how he's cutting.

The skill to fly this helicopter and manage the saw and stay safe and clear of the power lines, keep track of everything going on on the ground and make sure that you're not going to cause any damage to persons or property on the ground, it's just simply an amazing feat.

Jed does Helicopter Tree Sawing of all things. Trimming Trees along power transmission lines. I never even heard of that until he told me that was what he was doing. I have been impressed ever since. That’s a cool Helicopter Pilot Job! So I look down on the post, I see where I told him how proud I was of him. Then I read his reply to me. He says he is more proud of me for being his teacher! I don’t know how many people can really relate to how this made me feel. I sat back in my chair and just looked at the photo. I am thinking about everything I just posted here and then some. I am thinking about everything that I do.I am thinking about all the hardships, all the sacrifice I have made, the Helicopter Accident that I survived by absolute luck, I am thinking about everything!

 For me, sitting here, knowing that I get even partial credit taking Jed from day one, to the point that he is in in his life now. Is truly one of the most overwhelming feeling I have ever had. I am so very very very proud of Jed. This is only the tip of the iceberg of what I am feeling. I can not remember sitting down and completely writing from the gut without ever even looking back at the screen or trying to figure out what I am going to say next! Jed has an Amazing Helicopter Pilot Job!
