   Hi y'all, I recently went on an Introductory Helicopter flight -- to see what
it'd be like (I'm planning on starting fixed-wing training soon).   It was
AWESOME!!   I had a blast.   I was flying it for almost the entire session (which
lasted about 40 minutes).   I did pretty good (my instructor's opinion) and can't
wait to do it again!   If y'all'd like to do this, contact:

Roar Olsen (PIC) (Pilot/Instructor), Sky Helicopters Inc. 214-349-7000

 

Here's the pictures from my "Helicopter Adventure" that I enjoyed on 99-12-01:


 

The Robinson R-22.
Supposed to be one of the most difficult of training-copters!

 


 

I was in total control of the heli at this point. The instructor was prepared to 'save us' and it was often that he had to correct my mistakes. BTW: I was QUITE exhilarated by this time!

 


 

Here is a pic of the interior. Note the patented "T-Bar" Cyclic assembly (one end for each pilot) -- notice also the collective bar/RPM control at the pilots left hand (down by the seat) and the rudder pedals.

 


 

Here is another pic of the interior.

 


 

Here is the heli and I!
