as some of you may know I was the Company Commander for B Co. 229th AHB for two years until circumstances changed and I stepped down. I was taught the fundamentals of huey flying from 2 real life huey pilots an American and an Australian who also piloted gazelles. I was taught gunnery and advanced techniques by a rl Dutch AH64 pilot (retired)
Another great tutor who took me for all my exams and checkrides is an experienced UH 60 pilot who is still serving, if I can pass on any of the stuff I learned to help people enjoy choppers more then it will not be wasted knowledge
I never realized how much I missed it until I helped out @ScoopD and then joined him last week on a low level heaven training night.
Anyway I have got the bug again and whilst I cannot commit to 3 nights a week I would like to propose a fortnightly helicopter session and rather than doing lots of training we learn as we do.
I will come up with a mission that will incorporate an element of learning but will be first and foremost fun.
If you can leave a post with your favourite rotary craft I will build them into the scenario.
Also differentiate between slick and gunship flying if you plump for huey or hip.
If this idea appeals and we can get people interested within mudspike then once the hind and Apache are out we can learn the system s together and share the knowledge
Any comments or suggestions post below.
