  1. Professor Chaos does not approve...
  2. Butters, since when you change you avatar pic? That's not the Butters I know.
  3. Ohhhhhhh, that must be where the term "ferry flight" came from! And that story is incredible, Bob Ferry was a beast.
  4. So who should be on the back of our licenses then? ...if not the Wright brothers
  5. Thought I saw a trend with lucrative high, time postings that require a bachelor degree. Lockheed, Dyncorp...government contracts.
  6. Even with my limited experience, comparative to other poster's here, I'll contribute a bit. Exhale as you lower the collective and/or aft cyclic...even if it's the end of the rep when lifting weights, or depressing the trigger as you fire off a precision shot... (examples) Make sure you're controlling your breathing at that critical moment, a nice controlled exhale always helped myself and the other voices in my head.
  7. Dunno if it's a curse or a blessing at this point, was awfully keen on getting over the 'Bell back' transitioning into the squirrel. Time will tell.
  8. I'm kinda with you on this one man, straight and level, 70% trq or so, little bit of left pedal and right cyclic 'feels' right (correct) trim string slightly pointed at my dome... Or is it the other way around? Oh gosh.
  9. Would ya'l consider me crazy if I'd say trim at night feels different than trim in the daylight?
  10. Fellas, please. I really have no clue on this one. I'll get it cruising straight and level tap each of the pedals (slightly) and it still won't feel 'right. Got an Aspen MFD/PFD installed and I don't trust anything that thing says. My back still hurts at the end of the day.
  11. So it's just straight up the pipe then? Was probably just over thinking it, something about how the pilot seat is slightly crossed in or maybe I'm a lil cross eyed.
  12. Coming from Bell products, love having a trim string again. Is trim accomplished with the string lined up straight with the center pillar, or is it offset and pointed towards the pilot? My lower back used to let me know if I was in trim or not, but I'm just generally sore and numb now so I'm having a hard time sensing it.
  13. A serial killer to-be gets through the poly...and ole devil dog up there with a TSSCI gets dq'd ...somethin ain't right And wasn't there a story about a former Marine 1 driver who failed as well?
  14. Wouldn't of that suspected serial killer CBP agent, that just got, caught gone through this same poly?
  15. If it ran as reliable as my 93 Accord LX...i'd fly it!
  16. Yessir. A wise man once told me..."you bring experience to HEMS, you should not (look to) get experience from HEMS"
  17. A ploy to get fresh money? Ever think your posts and experience is affecting the big wigs?
