Another day at work . . .
Not sure what everyone is up to right now, but I'm heading out for a little spin in a twin engine helicopter. Back in a few minutes! :D

what do you do Lucia ?

MichaelE 08-27-2014 07:19 PM

Have fun!

I can't fly any longer. I lost my medical cert after my heat attack and 4x CABG.

Sounds like fun. Considering your location I've gotta say I'm jealous of the views you probably have! :p

Castlemaid 08-27-2014 11:09 PM

Well, that was FUN!! We hit 150 knots - this is one FAST helicopter!

LOL Michael, I'm not a pilot, just a desk jokey. Though I have flown in quite a lot in helicopters from my Army Cadet days, Air Force days, and now with the company I work with.

Ace - I track maintenance performed, and maintenance up-coming for a fleet of over 20 helicopters (we have more helicopters than that, but these are the ones that I am responsible for).

And since you guys would most likely rather see pics of gorgeous dogs and cool helicopters than pictures of me, let me oblige:

Yum! Griff is so handsome, who notices the whirlybird?

Ashley_M 08-27-2014 11:12 PM

That's a fantastic picture!

Ah, Bell Jet Ranger.

Flys by beating the air into submission.

LOL - they feel more like being in a flying small Goldfish Bowl.

Yesterday I got to ride in a Bell 427 - a whole 'nother experience - the lap of luxury!

That's pretty cool. I've been on helicopters and love it, but I refuse to get on an airplane:)
