Along with other newbies to the world of helicopters, I'm curious to learn what the pilots are expected to do when hurricanes are approaching. Specifically, what is your specialty (GOM, EMS, ENG, Corp, LE, etc.) and what are the responsibilities you have? Do you fly north until it passes, or do you have hardened hangars and just ride out the storm? (Is the attitude "Hey, that's why the helicopters are insured!") In the GOM, do you evac everyone from every platform in the path? What are the criteria for determing which platforms the oil/gas industry want evac'd? Is it a mad dash before and after the storm?(Get'em out and get'em back) What about your families? If you have job responsibilities, at what point can you put your family first? (really) Does your spouse have the ability to handle getting your family evacuated without your help? (Boarding up your windows, etc) These are things that I'm sure we're all interested in, even just to compare notes from different areas of the industry. Thanks. Rick
