Friday, June 11: The team departed the hotel in New Orleans at 5:00 a.m. to travel to the Lakefront Airport, where we were to meet the helicopter and crew.  Prior to being able board the helicopter, all team members had to complete a thorough orientation in helicopter crash procedures, including what to do if the aircraft had to go down over open water.  Since we were there to see the situation closely, we would be flying with all doors open.  Therefore, a familiarity with safety procedures was critical.
