During Confrontation in Borneo in 1966 brand new helicopter pilots were coming out to Labuan and one harrassed squadron training pilot would take them on. Two weeks later they were flying over half of the jungles of Sabah; single pilot in a single engined Whirwind with primitive maps and no navaids.

That situation continued from February to October: No accidents, no losses.
