  1. To those of you who have gone before, I'd love to hear your experiences. I'm an avid helicopter enthusiast but am not part of the industry. Is Heli Expo something I'd enjoy, or is it pretty much for industry members only? I'm trying to decide soon so I can buy the tickets at a lower price.
  2. Thanks guys, I had just decided I prefer the forum version of Photos from the Field. Much appreciated!
  3. I recall seeing a short clip of an Air America pilot who dove out of his Bell right before it ditched into the ocean. Fortunately he wasn't injured, and it was certainly amazing to watch.
  4. I looked up Mi-24's in the N-Number lookup section at faa.gov and look what I found: http://www.vscglobal.com/ Check out their mission statement, it's pretty interesting, IMO.
  5. Edit: Sorry for the double post.
  6. The hoist arm's shadow looks a little odd though.
  7. ^and that makes me wonder how "100 hour wonders" are supposed to get from 100 hours to 3000 hours without being hired? Those multi-thousand-hour pilots have to come from somewhere...
  8. This might be a stupid question, but will you actually be flying, or helping out around the hangar for the first year?
  9. No, I'm not planning on stealing something, I'm just interested in them and I'd like it because I'm a helo enthusiast. Come to think of it, if there's a site that has many different helos' procedures, I'd love to know about it.
  10. I am looking for the startup checklist for the EC-135 (preferably the P2 variant. shutdown would be nice too.) Thanks.
  11. If you're not doing anything wrong, you don't have to be scared of them "sneaking up" on you...are you doing something wrong?
  12. -- http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/04/01/a160t_back_in_black/ -- http://"http://www.aviationweek.com/aw/generic/story_generic.jsp?channel=awst&id=news/aw033108p1.xml&headline=Boeing%20Rotary%20UAV%20Aims%20To%20Set%20Records%5b/ In simpler terms: -- http://www.boeing.com/ids/news/2007/q3/070928a_nr.html This also saves on the amount of fuel used. The helo they compared noise signatures with was a Bell 407. Very intersting stuff ,if you ask me.
  13. I hadn't seen that one when I wrote that, I found it yesterday, thanks.
