Helicopter Damaged by Fire Truck

March 21, 2018 Aviation Results

A helicopter owned by Evergreen Helicopters on display at a firefighting expo was hit by a fire truck, sparking a lawsuit when the City of San Diego refused to pay for the repairs. The jury sided with the manufacturer, saying they did not find comparative fault which would have divided responsibility for the damages, and awarded the full cost of the repairs to Evergreen.

AWARD: $350,000 to repair the damage to the main rotors
