June 15, 2020
As estimated in 2019, California experienced 7,860 wildfires that burned nearly 260,000 acres of land, damaged 732 structures and took three lives. To combat this, Helinet is deploying a Sikorsky UH-60.
Having flown as a flight examiner, instructor pilot and post-maintenance test pilot, Helinet's new president and COO Sean Cross accrued over 4,000 flight hours in the MH-60 Jayhawk and MH-65 Dolphin helicopters.
