This month Osborne Aviation completed yet another season of efficient and safe powerline photo and LiDAR inspection across the Endeavour Energy bushfire network. Osborne pilots and crewmembers spent extensive hours in the months of April, May, June, & July working with professional sensor operators and authorised inspectors to ensure that all Endeavour lines in bushfire prone areas passed inspection and will continue to work flawlessly in transferring power to hundreds of thousands of NSW homes.
