Very Happy ????I don???t think I???ve ever been so exhausted after a weekend???s flying.
The weather, mountains and flying were awesome??..ridges, bowls, canyons, wind from all directions and varying strengths.
Great company.
Highly recommended.

Hi Heliaviator

So glad you enjoyed yourself on the mountain flying course.

It is a brilliant course Smile I enjoyed every minute of it when we went in June Smile The mountains are quite 'magical' aren't they Smile Have you got any pics from the mountain flying course that you can post to us? Wink

I would definitely recommend the 'mountains' to anyone - amazing opportunity to fly in conditions that you don't come across that often! Also, the social side is fantastic...........

Just had a look at all the photos from the latest mountain flying trip - they are brilliant Smile

We have photos very similar, except you had better weather than we had Confused

Hopefully, when other forum members see these pics, they will want to go on future mountain flying courses Cool

Seoint Manor - wonderful as well......

Great social event for helo pilots Smile Smile

Errr.... you call 2500' a MOUNTAIN? Or was that shot from the foothills before you went higher?

3500' was the highest....although we did take go-hover to 11500' at one point to have max.throttle demonstrated.

the 2500' lunch stop was lower down in the hills. Snowdon is the highest mountain there, which is 3560'

We don't have high mountains in the UK.

Compared to the flats of the UK, these hills are high to us! Smile
