Please be advised that the Haverfield Company
will be conducting JCP&L's Annual Supervisory Vegetation Management Aerial
Patrol. These inspections are scheduled during the April through
September time frame on an annual basis and cover all transmission facilities
system-wide. Patrols consist of Transmission Forestry Supervision
personnel that accompany the pilot in order to identify effectiveness of prior
year's herbicide application and identification of any conditions warranting
further inspection from the ground and/or corrective action.

Transmission Lines, beginning on or about Monday, September 24, 2012 through
October 2, 2012, weather permitting.
The pilot will be in communication with any local Airports when in their
airspace. The helicopter will be flying low and slow at a speed of about 35-40 mph
above or alongside the lines, and may circle around for a closer inspection.
The helicopter scheduled for these patrols is a black, Hughes MD500, w/
registration (tail) number N8688F.
