Yea I hope to get my pilot's license myself very soon. Hopefully make it to rotory wing someday. I would love to go straight to Huey's but I hear it's outragious bucks to learn in a turbine heli.

Congrats Alan! I guess it's a Bell 230 next?

You should load some helis up in it and fly over for some Texas/LA funflies next year!

Congrats man, keep it up. I was gonna buy myself some lessons but its just a bit out of my price range out here, so i'll have to settle for working on blackhaws and going for rides in them until i get accepted to flight school, not such a bad route.
Nothing like flying the real thing, thats for sure. Congrats again.

Congrats,
That's a great accomplishment. I have got lots of time in fixed wing, mostly in a M20J Mooney but my dream has always been with the rotory birds. Keep up the good work and keep us up to date on all the latest happenings. If you have the touch with full scale anywhere close to what you have with the models, you'll go far.

Keep it safe and enjoy every minute of it!!

How many hours did you have before your first solo? I'm just curious if your RC heli skills helped you learn the real thing.

Solo Hours
I had right around 22hrs. You have to have 20hrs minumum before they will let you go solo. My instructor hated that because he wanted to get out around 3hrs. Its alot of fun. I love it.
