Well, the time has come. We're off to Bagneres de Luchon again! If you haven't already seen the video of the last trip it's here:

This time we're doing it in two R22s, one R44 and a JetRanger. It's over 1200 nautical miles round trip and will take 4 days (allowing time for chilling out when we're there).

If anyone wants to tag along you'd be most welcome. All the aircraft are full but if you have a helicopter and want to join us on the trip feel free - the more the merrier. The house we have down there is pretty well full now with 13 of us going but if you fancy an epic trip there are plenty of B&Bs down there and we can hook up for dinner and beer in the evenings! We leave on the 8th and come back on the 11th (weather permitting).

No doubt there will be a trip report... and if you're lucky photographic and video evidence - the famous dry suit may make a comeback! Twisted Evil

Hot off the press, and after 24 hours solid iMovie editing here it is, the finished article!!! I'm impressed with the quality - all taken on a flip HD video camera incase you're geeky like me and want to know that kind of thing!!

Don't forget to select 720pHD on the video!

Enjoy!

Sarah

Very nice Sarah, looks like another good trip with nice weather enroute.

I am very jealous of one of our crews who are currently ferrying a Super Puma from Stavanger to Nigeria. From Stavanger they left to Newcastle then Redhill, down through France and Spain, over to Morocco and strangely enough are stuck in Lanzarote whilst trying to sort clearances for landing in Ghana.... lucky buggers!
