The way you should aproach this story, is how is the state providing any of the "State Owned" Helicopters with no pilots. I work for NC DFR, and as of 1 month ago the last Helicopter pilot in the state resigned. I do know that they have people that they can call on to pilot from other states, but this takes time. Also its a little known fact that the state sold the CL-215 Super Scooper plane on E-bay a few months back. Some one should cover on how little the state government wants to put into wildfire suppresion and why. The DFR does all they can with what we are given. Thanks for covering the fire.
