Fellow 22 sfh er's
Not sure if this is of interest to anyone but i use to heli share costs with a small group out of booker through heli air.
Simple equation, 2 people, one 22, one flys one way, land 'lunch, coffee etc' the other flys it back. Helps you stay within the 30 day rule, reduces some of the cost.
Obviously it helps to get on with your fellow pilot! plus a good way to build confidence, find new sites and i think it should be safer, 2 heli pilots as opposed to one 'duals removed of course'.
I am currently spending my money between Bristol & Wessex, based north side at bristol int, and Bristol Helicopters, based s side at bristol intl and kemble. I guess in theory it gives access to 4 22's, 2 44's and a jet ranger for sfh. Fairly standard check out procedures, and ??155 p/hr for a 22.
Bristol takes some getting use to, taxing with a 737 ahead of you tends to focus the mind and ATC are not always GA focused!
If anyone fancies some joint flying from these locations i would be interested to talk.
