Genuine? Helicopter post by Ol Shy & Bashful
Got to watch a V-22 Osprey doing touch and goes today at KBFM. What a fun hour of watching that amazing machine making the transition from hover to forward flight and back again.

fixed wing or rotary wing? by Craig Campbell
I am about to start my private pilot helicopter course. I have been told that learning fixed wing first makes it much easier. I am not sure what to do as my heart was set on rotary but I want to do it right first time. Can anyone please give me feedback on this? Thanks Craig Campbell

I know almost nothing on helicopters... by Externet
Hi. First post here. Always got it in my head, decided to ask today... What if the body of a helicopter was built shaped with some tilt, as a "sail" or with a vertical controllable aileron by its bottom, or both; in such way that the downstream air flow from the main rotor caused the same...
