There are so many things that I want to do as a helicopter pilot. The list seems to grow every day, with every photo I see, magazine I read, or friend I make in the industry. They all have uniqueness to them, and the dynamic of our industry just grows and abounds in front of my eyes daily. A lot of that is in part due to my work with HeliOps Magazine, and managing the Helicopter Pilots group on facebook – you’ve all shown me, and continue to show me, just how big our small world is.
A few months back though I had a chance to go for a once in a lifetime flight. It was something I absolutely HAD to do, and honestly it was kind of time sensitive. That is, I got to take my grandparents up for flights in a helicopter! Sadly Grandma Lil passed away many years before I could earn my pilots license but I know she’s been flying with me since day number one. Click through for a gallery of the photos from that day!
