Took my first flight in an R22 this weekend! After we took off, the instructor was hands off the controls for virtually the entire flight until landing. I have probably 200+ hours in FSX, and a solid understanding of fundamental flight controls, but I was still impressed that I managed to not die.

Nice one! My first flight was not so long ago and it was AWESOME. I just need to get around to having a second/third/fourth flight. :rolleyes:

Any updates on this? 

 

You flew again? Became a 2Lt? Fell off the edge of the planet? Very quiet...

Lol. Unfortunately not, currently partaking in Finals Week for my University. 

Two more years until the UH-72 though... so that is something to look forward to.
