Hi I'm "Copter" (guess why I choose this nickname ... ),
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
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. _________________ <div>Helicopter enthousiast & photographer</div><br>

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

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.

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
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.

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)
