Default 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!

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!

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:

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
