Oregon Helicopter Pilot Goes Beast Mode During Christmas Season:
Could an argument be made that the Christmas tree is almost as important as the presents to the holiday season. If so, that an argument can be made, that this helicopter pilot is cooler than Santa himself!
Watch this amazing footage of pilot Dan Clark flying a Northwest Helicopters, LLC 206B3 Jetranger November of 2008. Oregon is the nation’s biggest producer and exporter of Christmas trees, selling about 7.3 million trees a year, more than twice that of No. 2 North Carolina.
The largest Christmas tree producer in the state is Holiday Tree Farms of Corvallis, shipping about 1 million trees a year. That ridiculous number can only be possible with the work of talented helicopter pilots like Dan! Manager Dave Silen says a shift toward more family gatherings this year could help sales. The holiday trees represent a $101 million industry in Oregon.
If you think this impressive show of helicopter piloting deserves a share, send it around this holiday! It’s sure to get people excited this Christmas!
