  1. Don't forget Deadly Encounter. I have both Birds of Prey and Deadly Encounter and watch them both from time to time.
  2. What do the regs say about carrying a concealed .40 cal Glock? If you are going to be flying a lot in B.F.E. Sounds like a really good idea.
  3. Are there any current CFI's working with Bristow Academy in New Iberia on here that would share some information and answer some questions for me via email, FB or which ever is easiest for you???
  4. Thank you for your reply. I still have over a year before I will start school there. I was just curious about what Bristow Academy, New Iberia limitation/regulations were. I will not be near 250lbs, but it sure is nice to know that if you are still on the heavy side there is a chance for you to complete your training and get a job as a CFI. I'm looking forward and know that the training and change in career will be A LOT of work but also a lot of fun.
  5. I was just wondering if anyone here that has trained at Bristow Academy, more specifically the New Iberia campus. Is there a weight restriction for the flight instructors? Are they flexible with it, and what is their restriction/cut off for weight? Also do they have a weight restriction for students? I know what they fly, just wondering what their rules were?
  6. Just wondering. What happens if you do fly over the big house?
  7. Is there anyone out there that might have a helmet mount for a SPH-4, SPH-5 or SPH-5CG for the ANVIS-9 NVG's. If you do have th mount I was wondering if you would part with it for a price? I was also hoping if someone could point me in the right direction to find some that are used or under the $600 new price. I really don't want to pay than much for a mount. Thanks for your help.
  8. I wonder if he just had to goto the bathroom really really REALLY bad!!!! LOL
  9. I have had the opportunity to do two cross country flights. One is a 44 and another in a 206. Unfortunately both fell through. I was also offered a opportunity to go on frost patrol. Couldn't get time off work for that. All I had to pay my own way. If someone is nice enough to offer this to me. I hope that one day I will have a chance to offer it to someone else. Lets help each other.
  10. Thank you so far for your input. I have done my research and have seen what schools post as a estimated cost. I was wondering what is the real world cost. Thanks again. I would like to hear more.
  11. I was just wondering how much some people spent going through flight training for their private, CFII, and Commercial? What was the total cost for school? How many hour did you finish school with? Thanks. Looking to start my training next year.
  12. http://www.canadianhelicopters.ca/intro_1.html These are some cool vids. I first saw that crazy pad in one of these videos. They are mostly pictures but they show some interesing landing zones to. Or better to say "light on the skids!!!"
