  1. Most of the people on this forum are Canadian mate. Maybe ask on a British forum?
  2. I think I’ll agree to disagree on that one. You do you I’ll do I’ll do me and the low timers are welcomed to PM me with any questions.
  3. Understandable man but not always the case. If there was one way to do it, we’d all do it the same. When bird towing for example, I’ve gone weeks without disconnecting the device. It’s a lesson and you’re supposed to be able to adapt to your own situation based on the lessons placed here. No need for the above message dude. We’re all professionals here. (I hope so anyway)
  4. That longline story is a big one Pool. Thanks for sharing it. I was on the scene of a “tether ball” incident in which the pilot survived. I learned that one second hand but it’s so easy to forget. If I leave the line on, I hook it on my door handle. Can’t get in without forgetting it that way. Although that only works on an AStar.
  5. One night, chatting with guys at the pub, I mentioned (like an idiot) that I’d never had a tail rotor strike… the next day, I land in a spot all fat, dumb and happy and hop out to hook on my line. There, next to my tail not two feet away is a 5’ pine. It was so close that I shut down and cut it down before I took off. I have no idea how that thing didn’t get pulled into the tail rotor! Obviously, do a good recce but more importantly, DO NOT TEMP FATE! She’s a mean ***** and will come back to prove you to be the moron you ( but mostly me) clearly are.
  6. Sounds like he’s pretty **** smooth if a sloth though it was a branch!
  7. This is the Vertical we all signed up for!
  8. Don’t give him the satisfaction Pool. His hat probably made it hard for him to read the full story because it contained true statements.
  9. That’s unlikely. They age N registered ex military aircraft all around the world.
  10. Is this what you do? You make a mistake and redirect rather than admitting you were wrong? I believe it’s spelled “I’m sorry for my inappropriate behaviour “. you can just copy and paste that if you like.
  11. The Caribbean has great internet. not sure about the PM comment. Are you admin? Congratulations.
  12. The sheer professionalism when hiding behind a display name. Not appropriate. At. All.
  13. I suppose my sugar coating could use a overhaul. 😂
