My love for helis started as a boy age 3 darting to the top of our long garden to capture the sight of this sound I was witnessing, the sound of a helicopter crop spraying the field to the back of our house a bell 47 at the time.

I watched intently mesmerised by its agile manoeuvres as it sprayed the cops swooping from one end to the other, yet this was the old classic Bell 47 performing some fascinating manoeuvres..
By the time I was in my secondary school I had owned many model heli’s to play with in front of the TV and annoy however was watching it!
Then came the time of a local race meet, it was the bid BBC Radio 1 Fun Day event at a local race track open to the public.

There it was! the was the Bell Jet ranger 206, as I watched it flying paying passengers to and from the grounds, only and guess what? ...my dad had only booked me on a pleasure flight in this lovely machine! the rest as they say is history.... I was hooked and the 206 Jetranger result then became my favourite..

Fast forward to much later in my to a lovely sunny day in October of 2011 for a trial flight that was to be in an Robinson 22 with Leicester Fly Heli school.

However I learned I could also take two others in the Robinson 44 for not a lot more cost, so I thought the Mrs and my lad could come along and have a laugh at my exited attempt to put into practice that I had spoken about for so long..

Further inspection then revealed that a total of around £100.00 on top of my initial cost it would be possible to do this yet instead a combustion engine I could of take to the controls of a 206 turbine heli!! The one I had always loved since that day and flown many a time in Microsoft Flight simulator..

Following lots of research I knew all about the procedure of starting one of these lovely Alison Turbine engines, and the sound never fails to excite one!
I was amazed at just how natural the controls came to me! So stable nothing like some of the models I had flown in Microsoft Flight Simulator, my day had come and this machine was everything I expected.



I have since used the 206 Model by Dodsim in Microsoft Flight simulator which is used for training and its comparison to the real thing leaves no gaps at all!
I do hope someday to try the Robinson 22 which will be a true test of my understanding of taming one of the feistiest helis to tame...until then i’ll be happy to continue making footage of these lovely machines.

So that's me still not flying myself yet however If you share my desire then great as I hope to raise more revenue for better film equipment along with better turned out footage on my YouTube Whirlynerds Channel, also along with paid experiences that I can then document and we can share our passion together, I may even be able to reveal if I am truly a natural flying helis myself!
