Pilot Helps Capture Southern Snowstorm

Jan 31, 2014 No Comments by

If it weren’t for Birmingham, Ala.-based helicopter pilot Brian K. Coshatt, you never would have seen Birmingham’s snowpocalypse the way you did.

You can thank Coshatt for giving you perspective. Over the past three days, Coshatt piloted the helicopter that AL.com and some local television stations used to get journalists up in the air, above all the frozen gridlock, to capture a bird’s eye view of Birmingham’s highways and byways. Coshatt, a native of Birmingham, has been an airplane pilot for 38 years and flying helicopters since 1993. He is the owner of a new charter helicopter company, ExpressHelicopters.com.

“Flying helicopters is the most fun flying I’ve done out of all the flying experience I’ve had. Really it’s because I feel connected to the earth, you can see what’s going on.”

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
