Resizing

Thanks for that.

Could you send me a PM with how to do the resizing and software you used, so i don't have to pester you with this again.

Helisurface in France


Mas du Langoustier, Island of Porquerolle, Cote d'Azur

Green gras in front of hotel, very nice but a bit tricky in gusting Mistral.

Based out of Jet Systems http://www.TEAMLNT.com
Had a great week. Ferried guests, drivers and team personnel in to Le Mans throughout the week from a great Chateau (des Broittieres) 40nms sw near Champigne (working on pic!)

Dropped off a tired boss and his wife back in sunny Yorkshire, with the sun glinting off the Le Mans 24hr trophy for first place in GT2!!!!
Reckon it's been a while since a 'privateer' has won such a prestigious race........ Chants of 'YORKSHIRE YORKSHIRE' could be heard from the podium!!!!

Winning car

Next week am taking my 206 down to just south of La Rochelle with my freshly minted Helisurface permit on board. Can anyone recommend a good chateau for lunch somewhere between Deauville and La Rochelle that is known to accept helicopter diners? Somewhere in the Loire would be most pleasing...

Thanks in advance.

Heli Surfaces Permit

Hi Southern Cross,

Is a HSP difficult to get? I have heard that it is a beaurocratic nightmare.

Any help appreciated.

Hi Hairyplane
If you're a member of HCGB, get in touch with the club event secretary - he's an expert on this and has a pre-completed example form to help you fill in the application. I do know the forms have changed lately though and I'm assuming he will have an up to date version.
Regards

Back out to France 2007

Don't get out much but back to Le Mans for pre-qual this weekend in an attempt to defend GT2 title................

Has much changed since last year?

Now that we have a helicopter with 'legs' - looking at flying direct to chateau from LEEDS...
has anyone managed to convince the French customs to permit this or do you always have to enter via an 'airfield'.

Are there any height restirctions, for landing in the Alps (as there are in Switzerland)? I'm planning to go down to the Alps this summer in my 206. I have a Heli-surface permit and will land at around 1,100m outside a village.

I need to be a bit careful: the local mayor is bit anti-heli, I need to be bang on with the paperwork!

Notam pasted in below, will maybe affect people flying out of Biggin Hill, Redhill, Headcorn, Damyn's Hall, Rochester etc..

Just one question - has anyone an easy way of getting a graphical picture of this notam? OR do we have to all hunch over our charts and plot them out by hand? Surely there is an easier way?

The AIC has a very good map of the RA(T), so why should you need to plot it?

I was in Hyde Park today (sat) watching the tour prologue; a police helicopter was constantly overhead. Isn't this a bit of a waste of taxpayers money (what's it cost? about 1,000 per hour?), just having it mooching around, when there isn't an actual incident happening?

Why can't it just stay on the ground until it's needed to attend and incident?

How do you know it wasn't working?

Just because we happen to hover over Big Brother every now and then its does not mean we are just doing it to annoy them though that is always a bonus.

With our Ec135 on average every incident costs 300-400. Ec145 is just a 135 which had to much weetabix in the morning.
