EXCUSE ME ??

 

Did I hear correctly ????

1000 hours and trying to decide whether to fly a 407 or an Astar ???

 

My goodness, how times have changed !

 

Luxury !!

When I was a lad I had to work 27 hours a day down in coal-mine, then eat dirt for breakfast, then spit-shine helicopters 'til it was dark,....and pay the owner for the privilege.

Aye, kids today got it too easy, I say.

No offence Cyclic Monkey please get things straight before commenting .I have definitly not had it easy ,three years going round in circles driving tractors doing 18 hr days to pay for licence .

Then another three years being a loader doing ag in the morning at first light then sitting in a 6 by 4 caravan on the side of the road working my *** off selling glacier flights for the rest of the day cleaning heli's and even baby sitting bosses kid's being paid bugger all then being told I didn't have enough experience and try else where .

Luckely by doing this another company was watching and started me.

So please dont judge me by asking a honest question all I want to do is get into a 407 down the track it may be next year it may be in 5 honestly I would be quiet happy flying a 500 for the rest of my career.

Regards Dan

It seems it's been a while since my Monkey humour has been seen around here...

Some of the new faces aren't sure what to make of it.

Sorry guys, it's a joke ........all my posts are.

Enjoy.
