Don’t be alarmedPosted: June 15, 2012

If you are seeing helicopters flying low over the Cranbrook in the next couple of weeks, do not be alarmed.

The City of Cranbrook has advised e-KNOW that Talon Helicopters, of Richmond, will be conducting low level flights over the city and a number of other municipalities in the province beginning June 15 through to June 30.

“The low level flights will occur between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7 p.m.  The purpose of the flights is aerial mapping of power lines for BC Hydro,” reported city communications director Chris Zettel.


Flights are also being made over Fernie during this time.
