Today, I got the chance to take a ride in a vintage, built in 1946, Bell 47! Man, it was great!!!!!!! Here in Mobile, at the Battleship Park, they started giving helicopter rides earlier this year. I had promised my mother-in-law a ride for her birthday and today (even thought I was several months late) was "payday". We had an absolute blast! One part of the ride even included a bit of "nap-of-the-earth-flying" and a "pop-up" over a tree line. That was the coolest part of the ride.

It was VERY hard to tell who had the most fun.

I won a ride in one at a scale event here in England two weeks ago. An hours trial flight where i had cyclic control some of the time. Also included crop spray runs, nap of the earth, and some pictures and video of a large Vario Bell 47 flown alongside by Dave Hollins. Still smiling!!!

I've since bought a Hirobo Bell47 gasser to build. Always liked them anyway

Hell with the RIDE. Come to floida and you can fly one.
Wow what a rush. Turbine powered Bell47. It is a awsome experience and I would suggest everyone try it. 15min flight class and you are trying(note trying ) to hover. Its not easy with out the 601.
Then you are off flying and landing it is really cool.

In honor of the venerable old Bell 47 'Sioux' I'm flying 'nothing but' on G3.5 tonight.
