  1. If you call, I am sure AĆ©rospatiale... err.. .Eurocopter... ummm Airbus will provide you with the cost of the factory school.
  2. I was just editing some of my older helo pics, and thought maybe a photo thread could be fun. Any interest? I can start.... https://www.flickr.com/photos/37032073@N06/48727083343/in/dateposted/
  3. Your grasp of irony is as solid as Alanis Morissette's.

I saw the situation developing, but was not worried too much about it, as I could take the controls if needed. The student made a right pedal turn, and the nose was now 90 degrees to the wind-line. The ship started to rotate, but I told the student to hold the skids level, and let out some collective, and put some forward cyclic in (I was now on the controls as we
  11. Good thing you will not be shining balls... that seems like it would be counterproductive on a fire. Watch, learn from others, have fun, and be safe. Helicopters don't put out fires. Helicopters help the guys and gals on the ground put out, or at least contain, fires.
