Kick The Tires And Light The Fires!

As per the latest edition of the flight manual I have for Hughes 269 C-GLQZ, revised 05 July 96, the additional cargo racks specified in section 8 of the flight manual pose no supplemental Vne reduction. Therefor the Vne is 83KIAS with a gross weight of greater then 1700lbs and 95KIAS with less then that. Unless the opperation is performed with the doors removed which limits the Vne to 89 in any event.

-Edit, and bye the way, I do like the helmet but I really did just post simply because my folks sent me the picture late at night so I decided to pass it on. The only place I didnt even think about cutting cost is safety.

The first milestone has been reached!

 

The formal ground school portion is now complete with 80 hours in class now done minus a few loose ends that well be looking over such as weather that can be ongoing through the flight portion.

 

Tomorrow we'll be adjusting the oleos on the skids and taking care of some other small snags as well as having a test that ive been pounding the books for plus doing the pstar (which I'm doing as practice as I already have a valid pilot permit).

 

My first flight should be thursday!

The words ive been waiting to hear for quite a while now I finally heard over the comms today... "You have control"

 

Im very happy about the way our flight went today with it being a basic fam flight I had the autorotation, departure and arrival demonstrated to me and held the helicopter in the hover first pedals, then collective, then both, then cyclic and finally all three. Im happy to report that I held a fairly sustained hover for a few minutes, long enough for the instructor to remove his hands from the controls.

 

What a blast... as far as comparing it to my fixed wing training I have to say that even a simple hover blows away pretty much everything but aerobatics.

 

The smile that wouldnt go away befor certainly wont now!
