Haverfield Aviation was awarded a United States Patent (US 7, 501, 574 B1) for a support assembly that will attach to a lattice type structure arm. This support will distribute the weight of the conductor to both sides of the lattice arm to prevent its collapse while changing insulators on ‘V’ or ‘I’ strings. This support also aids in the time it takes to make the necessary changes in a safe and efficient manner. Haverfield Aviation continues to lead the industry with new and innovative products that are geared to improve the operational safety for linemen and their equipment. Larry Graham, who brings over 30 years of transmission line maintenance experience to Haverfield Aviation, designed this particular device.
Mr. Darryl Ed, the President of Haverfield Aviation stated, “It is this type of dedication to our company and the utility industry that has allowed Haverfield to maintain its position as the industry leader in the aerial maintenance field”. Haverfield Aviation is based out of Gettysburg, PA where they maintain and operate a fleet of 15 helicopters.
