The Heli “economy” was due for a correction. It got very big very fast around 2005-2008. Mark’s IRCHA threads and the number of views on each really corroborate the interest people had during these years and the subsequent fall off. The market was saturated with very similar products and the explosion of drones I think pulled a lot of would-be Heli entry level fliers to a craft that was easier to get into and, ahem, could fly itself.

Good to hear you guys are still kicking. I remember the discussions of the heading hold gyros ruining FAI. Lol. I’m flying a few demos each year but not interested in trying to scare the ground with my Heli. I have no interest in driving across the country to watch it either.
Interesting read from the old names here.
Paul Soha is a free agent now. Wow.

I agree with you. I'm not interested in driving for 8 hours to get there only to find a minuscule consideration for the vintage stuff. Scale has a good showing but the very machines that made all the rest of it possible are passe now. I think it's tragic but it won't stop me from enjoying my old helis.
