Flight to the The Quabbin Reservoir – Belchertown, MA

The Quabbin Reservoir is the largest inland body of water in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and was built between 1930 and 1939. Today along with the Wachusett Reservoir, it is the primary water supply for Boston, some 65 miles (105 km) to the east, as well as 40 other communities in Greater Boston. It also supplies water to three towns west of the reservoir and acts as backup supply for three others. The Winsor Dam and the Goodnough Dike form the reservoir from impoundments of the three branches of the Swift River. The Quabbin Reservoir is part of the Chicopee River Watershed, which in turn feeds the Connecticut River.

Welcome to Josh Marshall – Our First Intern!

josh and mikeJosh attends E.O. Smith High School, the Depot Campus. E.O. Smith High school is focussed on learning through “real world experience and internships.”

Josh is 16 years old and is a Junior in High School, and this is his first year at the Depot Campus.

Josh has wanted to be a helicopter pilot for Lifestar for several years now. He believes it would be a great career and he could contribute a positive influence to the world, which he would enjoy. He found us on the Internet while searching for a helicopter training school.

Josh and his Advisor at the Depot Campus called and scheduled a “Shadow Day”, which also included a demo flight with Reagan Jones. Josh also interviewed Tim Dunn our Chief Pilot.

Josh LOVED his demo flight and really enjoyed his time with us. Afterwards, his Advisor and Rhonda discussed an internship for Tuesdays and Thursdays.

So there you have it, now Josh is an Intern here at NEH and so far loves it. He is thankful for everyone involved for helping him reach his dream!
