G’day everyone! Hope you’re all doing well and surviving the current craziness.
I have decided to pour some more time into flying these whirly birds of chaos, I really want to become comfortable behind the stick, and sink some time in (Also helps you don’t need toe brakes since my left toe brake went on my pedals)
To that end i’m thinking of doing an epic journey of sorts, heading out and perhaps doing around the world trip, or around Australia at the very least.
That or perhaps i could run an Air Ambulance series of scenarios, transporting patients, search and rescue, picking up injured individuals.
With that in mind it comes time to choosing the bird/birds that i’ll be taking.
Currently i have the Cabri, and the 407 and 412 available as my payware selection, but none seem suitable as an “around the world” type deal, great birds, and i’ve enjoyed learning on them, but i’m looking at something else.
I saw the R66, and knowing pilot yellows channel i thought maybe it would make a fun contender to take ATW, however it could also be a little slow?
Then i see all the new reviews, R22’s, The AW139, the 222, the Huey… all of them look so amazing, but i’m not sure what to grab.
Imagine yourself a private owner, going around the world with just your partner, a dog and a cat… Which would be your go to bird?
As for SAR/Medical… the AW139? I know our Westpac service uses them…
Help, i need more toys! recommendations?
