A test flight in Intracoastal City claims the life of a Texas helicopter pilot.
That's when the Vermilion Parish Sheriffs Office was notified the helicopter had crashed.
Bristow Group Incorporated is a Houston based company that specializes in helicopter services for offshore businesses.
One of Bristow's Bell 407 helicopters took off from the Chevron heliport near Intracoastal City...but the chopper made it only a quarter mile away from the heliport before crashing.
The pilot, Carl Amos of Corpus Christi, was said to have been on a test flight.
Bristow is currently cooperating with authorities in the investigation.
