a male (helicopter) pilot is a confused soul who talks about women when he's flying, and flying when he's with women.

In space, no one can hear you scream... but if you put a helicopter up there, some jerk would complain about the noise.

When I used to fly an aircraft the wouldn't fly with out hydraulics:

My four favorite parts are in this order:
1. The Big Fan (main rotor)
2. The Little Fan (t/r)
3. Power Steering (hydraulics - absolutely needed in the aircraft)
4. The Noise Maker(s). (engines)
The others are negotiable and we don't have to work as hard to survive.

This won't fit for 'FLHooker' cuz he needs both rotors....which reminds me:

"A Chinook - Two palm trees flying around in a dumpster trying to copulate"

Part of my old preflight briefing:
'If we crash and I am moving - Follow Me. If I'm not moving, take me with you.'

Advice given to me by an old pilot:
"If the button is Red, Yellow and Black Striped, or Dusty - DO NOT Touch It! If you DO push a button and it does something you don't want it to or the other pilot starts squealing, Push it again - Fast."

For the old A model Apache. "Power down and reboot- repeat as necessary."

As an helicopter pilot, one of two bad things can happen to you and one of them will happen:
a. One day you will walk out to the helicopter knowing that it is your last flight.
b. One day you will walk out to the helicopter not knowing that it is your last flight.
-
Before each flight, make sure that your bladder is empty and your fuel tanks are full!
-
Forget all that stuff about lift, gravity, thrust and drag. An helicopter flys because of money!
-
After dying in a helicopter crash, three air ambulance crewmembers find themselves at an orientation to enter heaven. Each one was asked, "When you are in your casket, what would you like to hear your friends and family saying about you?" Sean says, "I would like to hear them say I was a great medic and a great family man." Karl says, "I would like to hear them say I was a wonderful husband and an excellent pilot who made a difference."

The copilot says, "I would like to hear them say, 'Look! He's moving!'"

My flight instructor had one last piece of advice before my first solo, "Try to keep the greasy side down."

How do you know that there's a helicopter pilot at a party? Don't worry, he'll tell you.

How is a helicopter (insert least favorite model or type of flying here) like a cactus? On a cactus the pricks are on the outside...

Landings are mandatory, take-offs are optional.

Is everything that you need to survive anything that you are flying over attached to your body? Because if it's not and you crash, you'll have the rest of your life to wish it was.

A helicopter is an assembly of forty thousand loose pieces, flying more or less in formation!

Dunno if this applies to this thread:

"No $hit, there I was, flying along fat, dumb and happy. Suddenly, I'm inverted with a sling load. How did I know I was inverted? My air medals were hitting me in the face."


That one makes me giggle a bit :)

Airspeed, altitude, and brains. Two are always needed to successfully complete the flight.

When I die, I want to die like my granfather, in my sleep, not like his passengers kicking and screaming in the back.
Full right pedal, stare at the OAT gauge until impact...

-"If you are in trouble anywhere in the world, an airplane can fly over and drop flowers, but a helicopter can land and save your life." -Igor Sikorsky, 1947

►There are only 3 things a copilot should ever say:
1. Nice Landing, Captain.
2. I’ll buy the first round.
3. I’ll take the ugly one.

- "It takes infinitely more knowledge and skill to stop then land, than it does to land then stop!" Dr. Sergi Sikorsky

-The difference between a fixed-wing pilot and a helicopter pilot is, a fixed-wing pilot is someone who always wanted to get into aviation but was really too scared to try it!!!

-“The skill level of a helicopter pilot is equal to that of an aircraft carrier based jet fighter pilot and a lunar module operator”
Cigar Aficionado, 2000

A saying that I think is great is:

Helicopters are nearly perfect, all they lack is the ability to forgive!
