When devastating crashes happen on the high-way the fastest and easiest way to get out is by emergency helicopter. The biggest problem the emergency helicopters face on the highways are the power lines that cross the road. Having to navigate the wires is tricky and if a rotor hits one then you have a whole new accident.

The ‘Powerline’ emergency helicopter is a new futuristic design that will prevent further accidents happening during a rescue. Designed with four rotors instead of one allows better maneuverability around wires and nearby buildings or trees. With all four rotors being surrounded by a protective ring, the chances of a rotor hitting a wire and going out of control is significant. The new ‘Powerline’ emergency helicopter will be able to save more lives without the risk of putting more in danger.
