You're a heli pilot, Jon ?
I love helicopters. Incredible machines.

Just for fun - I did my private license in California in 2000, but only flew for a couple of years after that.

I do find hovering very satisfying - you can enjoy flying a helicopter without leaving the airfield!

I employed a guy who hired helicopters for fun. He had a really dry sense of humour and had me in stitches, especially regards safety and in flight “moments”. Explaining how they worked he went on to sat that Death Valley” is a good place and the Andes not so good. The effect on me was to never fly in a helicopter.

Imagine my delight that the very next Christmas, by coincidence, my daughter bought a helicopter flight over London for my wife and I.

Petrified!

But I do find them fascinating and almost as noisy as my car above 50mph
