  1. Saw this and thought it was interesting: "Dear Just Helicopters Members, We're trying to get some support for our Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) petition from pilots like you. This is really important to ALL pilots and does not pertain only to helicopter operations. We are all faced with increasing flight restrictions - most of which are without notice and without the knowledge of ATC. All it takes to get violated is the President deciding to make a last minute visit to a place where you are flying, or a sporting event to reschedule.

  2. My advice is to find a helicopter mechanic to work with. Most A&P schools are generally concentrated in fixed wing. Like everyone says you need experience.

Also, who do you mean THEY, some Republicans do agree with most of what the new bill has to offer. You make it sound like Obama is picked on, which is obliviously not the case; remember it takes both Republicans and Democrats to pass a bill.
  6. Nobody will know until 2014 when "Obamacare" will take full effect. Even now we do not know if it is a good or bad thing. But anyhow life will go on.
  7. every 2200 hrs/12 years needs to overhauled
  8. I have some questions regarding Temsco. How much do they pay monthly (it does not say on their website)? How is it flying for them? Do you have to sign a contract? Thanks.
