Several times in my short experience as a pilot i have noticed things that really make me wonder what the other person is truely thinking. Furhter adding insult to injury for myself is my past life. Years back I spent time as a crisis management specialist and delt with serveral situations which one would refer to as a crisis or life and death situation. Though it wasn't my life which was in danger in those situations i began to understand the delicate balance that we walk every day.

Spike on the line

Way back when, while working as a young CFI, I was tasked with the responsibility of manning the counter at the school. For a measly, eight bucks an hour I had to answer the phone, dispatch flights and greet visitors. One slow day, I was sitting on my rear reading the latest edition of Rotor&Wing, dreaming of my future, when a fellow CFI appeared and used the fax machine to send off resume to a perspective employer. When I glimpsed at his resume, I saw he had listed Bell 206 in the Aircraft

ETL and confined area operations

In a lot of situations you'll find yourself approaching a pad that has some tall obstacles around it blocking the wind, so at a certain point over the ground your airspeed will drop from 30-40kts to zero within a split second. The stronger the wind the quicker this will happen. At that point you're pretty much in an OGE hover making your approach to the spot. In a lot of cases like this, the obstacles blocking the wind near the pad, will cause the air on the lee-side to start to flow backwards i

The beginning

Hi everyone, probably not a lot of people reading a random blog att VR but anyway. This is the beginning of my pilot career hopefully. I will share what I can and when I can, hopefully often and a lot.   As of now I'm a student in Sweden and I'm finishing my BSc next June and hoping to get into Bristows combined JAA/FAA program that starts in September 2011. Until then I have a lot to study and even more to do to make it possible in terms of economy.   I've started mailing and contacting Bristow
