Yes indeed, great shots!

Are you able to provide any narrative on the type of work you are doing - are these B3's?

Also, I'm guessing you need a fairly reliable battery if your starts are regularly above 10,000ft?

We shut down as high as 22,000' (if required). Just a normal sealed stainless-steel battery? To me looks tiny? hmmmm but never lets us down. 50-60% work is high altitude rescues, charters, film work, heli trekking, heli skiing & slinging. Using AS350B, B2 & B3.
