Post 1st Time

I've just had my first lesson in a B206 Jetranger and just had to say what a fantastic way to fly.

This really is like a magic carpet and the only way to fly. Fixed wing aviation just won't be the same ever again.

Roll on lesson two and the PPL H flying will never be the same again.

Good on ya, mate.

When learning to hover, don't forget to breathe!

I agree the Bell 206 is a great machine!

I've been flying helicopters for years now but only recently put the 206 on my license. I have to agree, it's a lovely machine to fly.

It's great to see such enthusiasm for flying

Have to agree. The comment in my logbook for my first 206 flight simply says "Turbine WOW!". Blew god knows how much flying it since. I have about 50 or 60 hours in it now. Enjoy.

My next goal is the MD500. I believe it is great fun.

Out of all the helos I have been involved with since my tender years I think the 500 is the best allround bush and small utility machine there is. Being able to put it into the really tight spots thanks to the small rotor diameter is a wonderful thing.

I am sure you will enjoy the machine once you get your hands on it.
