Friends,

I just got the sign off for flying a beautiful Robinson R44 Raven II and I love it! This ship is a lot more modern that the R22 I got my training.
Both of them are so much fun to fly. Now I can take on the R44 some of my more heavy friends :laugh: .

This is becoming to be so addictive! I also doing some training on a Jetranger and hopefully in a near future I get to try an MD 500.... what a dream!!!

Friends, knowing how addictive you are about helicopters you have to get an hour of training with a CFI. Find a near training center and give it a try.
This is a journey I started 1.4 years ago..... and I pinch my self why I didn't try this earlier. If you ask?.... was hard to get here....you bet!.... you have to be 100% committed.

Here a few videos to share with you:

Enjoy,

Gonzalo

I got my private license (fixed wing) years ago and felt your enthusiasm while doing it and after.

For Christmas one year my wife got me an hour in an Enstrom F-28F which was a big thrill to say the least ! Unfortunately, the cost of proceeding securing the ticket was well beyond my financial means.....or at least , much more than what I would be willing to spend.....

Congratulations on your success !!!

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

gonzalom,

congrats on your ticket. I have thousands of full scale heli. hours, in about 17 different machines. if you every fly a MD500 take the doors off. it will be twice the blast.

Awesome bud! OK, if you bring the R22 to HSM I'll lose a few pounds... LOL

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

Barry, I am bringing the R44 to HSM 2016 on a Friday.
