This is my second time at Homer's. I and my pilot Glenn really like it there. I guess this is quite obviously since my pilot was willing to make the 12 hour one way trek by him self after his original invitee couldn't make it.
One of the reason Homer's appeals to my pilot is the fact that there are more suitable emergency LZ around Homer's that there non suitable LZs.
I too was one of a kind at Homer's, but in more ways than one. I think I was the only non American manufactured kit helicopter among the 25 to 3o birds there was there. I also was the the only 2 cycle powered helicopter there. Sad to realize that out of the 4 to 5 hundred XYZ 5oo sold that are also powered by the same motor as I, not a one was present at Homer's......... However by just watching me fly n the amount of flying my pilot n I did with only a preflight n re fueling between flights, it must be obvious to most that the CH-7 Angel's air frame n mount of it's 582 power plant is entirely different than in the XYZ 5oo. All of the differences between the XYZ 5oo n the CH-7 Angel makes the same motor in me quite reliable and even more so compared the the XYZ 5oo..............
I heard via a second party that a lady said something like "that one doesn't sound like the other ones or fly like the other ones either". I guess this lady didn't know I was designed as the sports care type where all the others may have been designed as a sedan or station wagon type. Also, my pilot considers me his "personal roller coaster" and loves to take advantage of the great maneuverability n practically perfect forward panoramic visibility as he makes me zoom.....
Well, candidly speaking, the guy with the belly above is my pilot, probably practicing a running landing in me. The guy below is Jeff Milum of Alabama, a Bell 47 driver. My pilot seems to have always enjoyed sharing his toys with some of his special friends. Any way, Jeff is one of those friends, so below you see Jeff taking me for a whirl.
One thing I must honestly say is that Jeff is much lighter than Glenn which makes my job lots easier. Glenn is up to 2oo now a days (perhaps because he has been in the ice cream n burger biz for the past 16 years).
Here you see Jeff just beginning a flair as he does an auto in me. Ironically Jeff owns perhaps one of the heavy's recip (Bell 47) in operation today n I am perhaps one of the lightest. Seems he has no problem with the contrast........
And here you see my cute little bumm, my pilot has always been a ass man, even in helicopters.
