need experienced large electric heli pilot in Denver area

I have a friend who has 2 new Logo 24 cameraships that is in need of a pilot.

He knows nothing of helicopters and has purchased them to start a photo business.

He needs someone VERY familiar with 600+ class electric helicopters to help him get them setup and flying. He may also need the services of a pilot on a regular basis for photo/video work.

The Logo's are equipped with the following

ZPower Z50A-800 motors
Castle 85HV ESC's
10s5000 packs
401 gyros
AP2000i stabilizers
Futaba 9C PCM radios

Please PM me if you think you may meet these requirements!

If I had a dollar for every time I've uttered this same sentence.... LOL.

How much weight is he hoping to lift?

AP and the FAA hummmm? not yet?

I love taking airiel photos for sport and fun, but for "Hire" brings a whole new sour can of worms when it comes to insurance companies and the FAA. I hate external authoraties telling people what to do when they don't have any experience at all in THAT THING they are saying is dangerous, never the less laws can't be ignored when your going into the "Business Of" , I would get with a Hollywood film production company or the Utah State police and ask how they are legally hireing chopper pilots to take photos, Bergen Heli would be a good contact also. Seems the big boys at Hollywood have learned a legal way of "Pilot for hire" and also have found an insurance company to underwrite them. Untill these bases are loaded and all these ducks are in a row, I wouldn't expect anyone to jump into this operntunity and quit their day job over it. The only airiel photos I have done for others are a "Favor for a friend" and a "Cash Favor from that friend to me" [no checks or paper trails]. One day the FAA will come up with a viable plan and certificate to make us insurable as a freelance company, meanwile you are dependant on a businesses underwritten policy that included Remote Aircraft damage.
Welcome to "Free" America,

thanks for the thoughts Scott, but I'd really prefer if this thread didn't turn into one of the thousands of "FAA AP for hire" threads.
We have enough of those already.... all with the same info. There's nothing new to discuss in that area.

Also I'm not asking for a pilot who will quit their day job. Just one that can check out their equipment and possibly fly it on occasion.

For now they aren't even taking photos for hire. they just want their machines gone over and test flown. The FAA issue is a moot point for now.

PM separetly,

First of all tell your friend he need to have LOTS of experience hovering at different altitudes. He can get training but to start a photog. business with heli's is going to take time and experience.
I have worked with the person who trianed the Utah State police doing this exact thing.
Where does he live?
