Chief Pup In Charge
Max was our beloved "OG" of the "OC" and was OC Helicopters founding PIC. Usually that means Pilot in Command. In our case it was clearly “Pup in Charge”. Having logged hundreds of flight hours (in dog years) Max definitely earned his pilot and heavenly wings (2016). In addition to his duties as PIC he was in charge of security, official greeter, film star (in his mind), whale and wildlife spotter and resident object of affection. You were in good “paws” with Max and you are with the OC Helicopters crew… So..as Max would have said....Get ready for a “barkin” great time! Max's spirit wraps us in love and lives on at OC Helicopters.
