After seeing my first helicopter land on a beach in 1955, I
was hooked from that moment on until this moment. Obviously my dream is
shared by many others just by looking at the visitor counter above.
However, a few words of
caution are in order
for the new guys.
It seems there may be more than one snake in the grass/sky in
the helicopter industry.
there may be people out there that are more concerned with emptying
than they are concerned with delivering you a safe kit.
I personally suggest before you buy anything, (New or Used)
you speak to MANY people with first hand experience with this craft, Naturally
people that do not have
any financial gain involved in your final decision.
I do not want to throw any cold water on my/our beloved sport
of helicoptering, but sad to say there may be an ever increasing
number of un safe helicopter kits
on the market now a days.
Many times in life you have the luxury of making one mistake
and living through it.
However, since a helicopter can do much more (isn't that why
we love um)
Sorry to say, helicopters
often kill just moments after
the first mistake (both
pilot error and or mechanical mistakes) is made.
Please get Lots a Good Advice Before You Buy n Lots a Good Training
Before You Fly.
The Life You will Save is YOURS.
now with a few 2 seat kits on the market,
I am concerned that the mistakes/deaths may be multiplied by
a factor of 2
now children may be among the fatalities, not just us old Rotor
Building, Owning n Flying a helicopter is a Very Rewarding experience.
But it is also a very Serious one Too.
I as most involved in the sport encourage new people joining
Just Join With Your Eyes Open.
