Laughing Laughing

Did a bit of solo this morning, was trusted to land on the main apron for the first time, I've previously been asked to land on the grass and my instructor jumps in before I land on the apron.

Today I landed on the apron, on top of the H, skids perfectly parrallel and even managed to stop the rotor blades fore and aft.

Cool

Job done, I don't need to fly ever again.

Real world?! What do you think the helicopter world is?! Smile I notice a lot of the places in the USA have the H exactly the same width as the R22 skids... a subliminal training aid maybe?

PS It is still nice to walk away and see that you parked it perfectly.

Of course in some places the H is considered an "aiming point" and the owner would prefer you to land "next" to it so as to

a) not obscure it and

b) to not scratch the paint off with your skids.

There are a few exceptions though, like on top of a lighthouse. Smile
