Hughes, I've flown small and medium helicopters in the past, I fly large(ish) helicopters now.

I don't think any more of myself for it, or less of anyone flying smaller machines. As far as I'm concerned, anyone narrow-minded enough to believe that flying a 92/225/Sea King/whatever somehow makes them superior to someone pottering around in an R22 is a moron, and probably nursing some insecurities.

You're being harsh tarring anyone who's flying heavier stuff with the same brush. Even though the people you are referring to exist, in a sizeable minority at least, I know plenty who are self-depracating and also genuinely interested in anything related to flying, regardless of MTOW.

To claim that we all think we're sky gods is rubbish.
