Over 2 weeks since anybody posted anything here - a bit sad, it used to be quite active and you could get a vigorous discussion.

Whirly Girl was one of the key players - awfully quiet.

All that has been up recently has been spam posters and a twerp who wanted to bag every flying school and its instructors.

Come on, Torquers, don't let it die a quiet death.

Very true.

I keep checking in to see if something interesting has happened, but most of the time the answer is no Sad

I drop in every day usually but not been flying recently for several reasons.

I think WG has her hands full with the little PIC in training...

It's fairly simple

1) Pprune (Rotorheads) is the main helicopter forum, always has been, always will be

2) Facebook now has several dedicated helicopter 'forums'...

There ya go

Do you know any good Facebook forums? I'm also on pprune, some strange comments in there sometimes, people have innocent questions, relatively speaking, and some of the responses.....ouccchhh!

It is a great shame this site has become virtually redundant, it was the perfect place to ask for honest advice without getting ridiculed like on other sites.

I am still dropping in. Was always great to see questions posted by students and pilots. Some good discussions and, as mentioned no ridiculing!

you know when you're with a group of like minded individuals and it goes quiet and you want to say something but you've not got anything interesting to say so you just look around...

It is a pity, it was pretty busy in here a couple of years ago.

We should all check back a little more often, might get a bit busier if we all started chatting again.

Some of the Facebook forums are bloody awful and have the word helicopter in so people go there.

I for one have got busy in the last few years, and rarely post anywhere, but do when it seems relevant.

Fly Safe.

Gary,

Hope you are well.

I understand people enjoy learning to fly and have a passion for it, but on facebook there is only so many pictures of an R22 I can look at.

There is rarely anything of interest, just pictures.

Be safe,

N
