OT for Kevin or anyone by boB

Have you flown "on top"? by B4RT
I'm just curious how many of you have flown on top? Either way, why or why not? I have. but didn't like doing it. It was to avoid flying too low among the blue ridge mountains when there were low layers hanging in the valleys. (I had a Garmin 396 with XMWx so from the sat/radar view I knew what...

How do I find a Bell 47... by Mike
....to get a little stick time? I'm a newbie (about 180 hours split between the 300C and the R22) and I would dearly like to buy a helicopter. No justification at all -- just a huge fascination with helicopters. I think my short list includes a Robinson or a Bell 47. But I've never flown a Bell and...

Eurocopter EC145 LUH by Mike
Posting for someone else: Can anyone confirm for me the U.S. military designation of the Eurocopter EC145 Light Utility Helicopter, or LUH, for the U.S. Army? I'm pretty sure it's going to be the H-72. (The H-70 is the Bell 407 Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter; the H-71 is the AgustaWestland...

used r-22 worth it? by [email protected]
rotor-heads, I'm a private pilot with about 100 hrs fixed wing, and about 15 hrs in the R-22 years ago.
