Shreveport for Business

I had a last minute aerial job fall on me and made the best of it. The location was near Shreveport, LA, so it would've been a long flight from Dallas. I quickly realized I knew a commercially licensed pilot in Shreveport who happens to be there training someone how to fly a R-44 right now.





The r-44 is a four seater, so I called up my best friend, Chopper, (name has no relation to helicopters), and he made the road trip with me, he also flew in a helicopter for the first time. ...and with this particular pilot, is quite a thrill!

That's him the foreground, I'm in the back seat with the door off.

Location:

Here is what we were photographing. All those trucks are pumps, to pump out hydrocarbons.




To prospective clients: You're always welcome to ride along on a photo flight! It does require this particular helicopter as opposed to the smaller 2 seaters. Ask us about rates!
