Genuine? Helicopter post by Ol Shy & Bashful
Got to watch a V-22 Osprey doing touch and goes today at KBFM. What a fun hour of watching that amazing machine making the transition from hover to forward flight and back again. Wish to hell I could get some stick time in that one before I hang up my licenses in the next year or two. Wish to hell...

I am about to start my private pilot helicopter course. I have been told that learning fixed wing first makes it much easier. I am not sure what to do as my heart was set on rotary but I want to do it right first time. Can anyone please give me feedback on this? Thanks Craig Campbell

Dumb ass by Ol Shy & Bashful
With any luck the clown who keeps posting his garbage re;Belfort will fall off a cliff or something and quit taking up all the room around here. Have seen his venom spewing on quite a few groups and wish he'd get the message we don't collectively care a whole lot. For the most part I ignore his...
