OK then- here are 6 key rules to being a helicopter pilot

Be very light on the controls.

Dont be scared.

Cut up all your credit cards.

Hand all your cash over to your wife.

Double your life insurance policies.

Have fun.

On a different note:

 

Don't worry too much if you are a little frightened or put off for some reasons.

 

Flying is something that becomes very quickly more relaxing the more you fly. Like riding a bike..

 

This comes from personal experience. I'd had one demo flight (with the doors on) in the UK.

 

A year or so later - I quit my job, rented out my home, sold my car and went to the States to the flight school.

 

The first time I went up (doors off) I was 40 percent excited and 60 percent uncomfortable and security conscious.

 

That feeling soon dissapeared and the more you fly - the more you love it and look forward to going back up.

 

So, I hope you have a great time - but don't be too disheartened by any new feelings you might have and know that if you do have such feelings, they usually balance out with time and experience.

 

Have fun.

such lovely encouragement

 

I've been skydiving several times, and motorcyles are a regular mode of transportation for me (when they aren't broke), so I doubt the doors off sensation will give me too much trouble.

 

I'm really looking forward to it.

Dang, the first time we took the doors off, I froze. I was wearing shorts too. And the wind about took my breath away.

 

I like having the doors off. Well, that and the blade flap.

 

Later.

Witch, & other pilots ? Try this & tell me what you think about the "feeling" : While in cruise flight, stick your arm out the door, ( ya know- like ya do sometimes when riding in a car w/ the window down) I dont recomment trying this alone tho, make sure you have another qualified pilot on board.

 

I love that sound of the blade flap too, lower collective a bit & aft cyclic------lets your friends know you are having fun ;)
