The first 100hrs post GFT were taken up with 94 flights (I kept the heli off-field for some months whilst hour building and had to do some little hops to the local airfield to refuel) and 19 of them involed passengers and 28 confined area.

This accident highlights the 'pilot's attitude to flying as much as anything and maybe the instruction and initiation into the responsibilities of flying were lacking.

I've been through that course six times in the eighteen years I've been a pilot.
