r22butters Posted January 19, 2010 Report Share Posted January 19, 2010 Recently on a trip to Vegas, I came across a brochure from one of the tour operators out there. There was a picture in it of a Eurocopter that had the collective mounted on the right? Since this was a French helicopter, I just thought, maybe that's how they fly? I then tried to imagine what it would be like to hold the cyclic in my left, and the collective in my right. To be honest, I don't think it would be a pretty picture, especially trying to hover with my non-dominant hand. Eventually I came to the conclusion that the photographer must have just reversed the negative, however, it did raise the question; How do you left-handed pilots deal with flying with your non-dominant hand? I tried swinging a golf club left-handed once, and I could barely hold it properly. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
