Hi I'm "Copter" (guess why I choose this nickname ... Very Happy ),

I live in southern part of The Netherlands near the German and Belgian border. For my hobby I am a helicopter photographer. I travel to airports, airshows, heliports and other locations to photograph mainly helicopters (also fixed wing aircraft).

I am allways looking for nice photo opportunities (like air-to-air photoshoots and company visits) so if anyone has idea's Razz Wink

Next to my normal job I do some ground crew work for a Dutch helicopter company a few times a year during pleasure flights. This company flies R.44's and EC.120's.

Missed this thread Confused

Well Im 35, live in the UK by Castle Donington ( EMA ) and Im a freelance audio / sound engineer.
Ive always had a fascination with helicopters and been fortunate enough through work to fly in several types as a passenger.

Anyway, figured its time for a career change so seemed to make sense to follow something Ive always enjoyed ( being in helicopters ).

Signed up todo my ppl(h) at helicentre in Coventry / Leicester and due to start properly end of Feb when my current tour / job ends.

I know its going to be a long road for this change of career, but hopefully in a few years time it means I can start to spend more time at home with the family instead of being away for months on end

Been reggied for a few months now but anyway Laughing

I'm Dan, I'm a student and solely run the site in my signature.

Local field is Sywell and it's been interesting to see it develop, plus Sloane are based there which makes it worthwhile!

Specific interests in the PolAmb side of helicopter operations, still not overly sure why mind you.. have travelled all over the UK (And still do) visiting and photographing them.

Never flown a helicopter, very much want to but I don't have that sort of money yet Razz

I'm Matt, in the US. Always intrigued by things that fly. I got a fixed-wing Private certificate in college (in 2003), but only recently was bit by helicopter bug. I think it's the shear complexity and instability of the machine that drew my interest. The damn things are simply fascinating, and I was thrilled to learn that it's at least as hard as it looks.

I'm 17.2 hours in on the R22 toward a helicopter rating (excited to solo). Thanks to all of you for creating and maintaining this site. I'm yet to find (though I'm now unlikely to seek) anything else like it on the web.

Cheers,

Matt

Hi Guy's

New to this forum, thought it looked very re-freshing compared with other forums, work in the industry and have done for over 25 years, and still love flying, fly the 206, 206L, A109 and B222, where else would you want to spend your day

Hello,

I'm Travis E.B. (AKA: Stingray), the creator and primary webmaster of Stingray's List of Rotorcraft, and forum Administrator of Stingray's Rotorcraft Forum.
I'm also the biggest fan of the Mil Mi-24 "Hind" attack helicopter. Smile

I've been interested in rotorcraft aviation since I was 11-years-old, doing extensive research and organizing it all in a 10-volume hand-written encyclopedic archive, which would later become my web-based archive (Stingray's List of Rotorcraft).

My knowledge revolves mostly around the history and development of helicopters and other rotorcraft.

Hi all

I'm Steve from Leamington spa in the Midlands, PPL(H). Started training with Helicentre back in April 2010 after coming home from a ski-holiday with an urge to change my life!!

Currently got my head in the books for the CPL(H) so currently not flying as much as I would like, but at least the bank account has some time to heal!!

This site is proving a great source of motivation when the study seems endless, keeping me focused on the end goal.

Cheers

Hey Lexboi

Sorry about that."

EMI won't let you tube show it - change the track for someone who's been dead ages and it should work.

Cool

Hi.
My name is Jerry and I'm waiting to do my qualifying cross country for a PPL(h) on an R22, as well as "revising" for my remaining ground exams. To keep myself occupied during the continous periods of bad weather, I have a job raising money in order to keep other people flying... (I'm not jealous, honestly)

Happy flying! Smile

Hello, my name is Kevin, I'm only 9 years old. I hope this is OK.

One day I want to be a helicopter pilot. I have only flown in one type of helicopter, but it's my favourite type. That's the Bell UH-1H "Huey" and I'm "Honorary Assistant Crew Member" on Huey 509.

I also have my own website http://hueyfanclubuk.weebly.com

Thank you for letting me join, "Doorgunner" real name Kevin.[/b]
