Chief Pup In Charge
Max is OC Helicopters PIC. Usually that means Pilot in Command. In our case it’s clearly “Pup in Charge”. Having logged hundreds of flight hours (in dog years) Max has definitely earned his wings. In addition to his duties as PIC he is in charge of security, official greeter, film star (in his mind) whale and wildlife spotter and resident object of affection. You are in good “paws” with Max and the OC Helicopters crew… So get ready for a “barkin” great time!
