Welk Aviation’s helicopter support division, Western Helicopter, has partnered with Tucson Electric Power in Arizona to build a new 500-kilovolt-transmission line in Pinal County. The project, which will take a year to complete, involves building 185 transmission structures along a 41-mile long corridor. Wayne Temple, a 25-year lineman and Summit Helicopter staffer, discusses how he utilizes a MD500 helicopter to aid in getting the job done faster and in a more cost effective manner.
