Thank you to all the chop­per pi­lots

Mercury (Hobart) - - YOUR TASMANIA - Jan and Har­vey Bullen Glenorchy Wayne McDon­ald Ta­roona

THE is­land and coun­try have been deeply sad­dened by the tragic death of one of our most highly es­teemed chop­per pi­lots, Roger Corbin. Our in­dis­pens­able and heroic he­li­copter pi­lots like Roger Corbin have res­cued so many tourists and lo­cals from jeop­ardy. These skilled pi­lots are very coura­geous, ready to risk their lives at a mo­ment’s no­tice to save oth­ers. Our emer­gency he­li­copter per­son­nel are ready for ac­tion at all times. With­out these state emer­gency re­sources, many more pre­cious souls would per­ish. These he­li­copters are ex­tremely ver­sa­tile. A he­li­copter pos­sesses the best pos­si­ble bird’s-eye view of what’s down be­low. A he­li­copter is ca­pa­ble of pen­e­trat­ing and per­form­ing ver­ti­cal land­ings in re­mote im­pen­e­tra­ble ter­rain in the short­est pos­si­ble time. With­out our devoted he­li­copter pi­lots and ground crews, we would not be able to com­bat prob­lem­atic res­cue sit­u­a­tions. Our ef­fi­cient state com­man­ders and chiefs of po­lice are over­see­ing these in­dis­pens­able he­li­copter op­er­a­tions and mak­ing sure our emer­gency ser­vices are flaw­less and run­ning smoothly.
