Animal herding with helicopter


Recommended Posts



I'm right now on my CFI and I need information about Animal herding with helicopter.


Does anybody know a internet site or have some pictures because I must have a presentation about this topic?


Thank's for help


Yes it is for a presentation in front of the CFI ground school class.

Check out the below websites.  Also try Google, and search images for cattle herding helicopters or jackaroos(Australian cowboys).


Good luck!

In a previuos life I was OAS carded for animal capture, eradication, tagging and darting. Did some wild horse and burro work. I have worked in one way or another with most of the predators and big game animals on North America. Animal herding/wildlife work/low level work period can be a bit dicey. This then begs the question. Why does a new CFI need to do a presentation on animal herding? Last I looked there was no FAA requirement for it. I happened to be be at a helicopter flight school recently and was dumb founded to hear some students discussing Cat A helicopter operations. What happened to the crawl, walk, run.
