Mark all wires that can't be removed on a hazard map for the pilot.
Wires are thin and often nearly impossible to see until it’s too late.
Your workload, vision limitations, and a small lapse in concentration can lead to a fatal mistake.
Ask farmers if there are any wires or poles above fence level or across gullies.
Overhead wires, aerials or cables are a significant threat to any aircraft flying at low level (under 500 ft). Helicopters are especially susceptible because of the work they do.
