Chopper down in Los Angeles

Recommended Posts

Call just came out, no details yet. This is very close to a training area used by many in the LA area. Santa Paula, Whiteman and Van Nuys all use this area to train in.

 

Hope it turns out well...

Goldy,

 

Is this in the Piru training area?

 

I haven't heard anything myself, but I am in St. Louis right now as well...

 

Thanks

Sorry I didnt update sooner, just got busy and had a lot of calls regarding this one. Turns out, it wasnt even a helicopter, it was a single engine fixed wing. Yes, it was up in Pico Canyon just south of the training area along East Piru Wash.

 

Never did see anything in the news, I'll go search some websites.

 

Landed on a remote dirt road, took out the landing gear, but both occupants walked away. LACO Fire Air 17 handled it, but someone forgot to tell the LA County Sheriffs Dept, lets just say they were not happy.

 

Anyway, glad it all turned out ok.

Thanks Goldy. Always a bucket of information when it's needed. Glad everyone was ok, helicopter or not. Always good to hear all are alive and well.
