Great Experience

I drove a tourist helicopter one time.
I took several lessons and I had my first training flight with my teacher and mentor.
Of course I was really scared. There are a lot of procedures to follow! Be secure that the passengers have tied their seat bells and explain them the security procedures in case of breakdown, start the engine and once you reach a considerable speed turn on the propellers and gain attitude. It is really beautiful! And now you can get some distractions and relax a little because it works basically like a car. Finally landing is not so complicated but pray the Lord to keep away storms tornados or bad wind because that could be a problem! Good flights to everyone!
