... Amazing pictures for that type! I have few hours on R22. How do you handle with turbulence in that mountains, on that altitude?

I only fly on R22 when turbulence is light. When wind is more than 25 kts, is better to turn home.

On the Op. Manual the limit is 25 kts (including the gust 15 kts).

Hi Everybody

Hi everybody, I'm not new up there (read only) but I see this topic today for the first time!
Let me post some photos, too.



Rifugio Passo Principe - Torri del Vajolet - 8'600 ft - Dolomites (Italy)



View of the "canyon" down to the valley from the same place.



Overflying the retreat (downwind) before approaching from the other side. Principe Pass with his Rifugio Passo Principe. Same location.



View of an utility house in front of unpaved helideck on "Sella del Ciampaz" - Catinaccio / Latemar Group - Trentino (Italy). On the right side is there another mountain retreat called Rifugio Roda di Vael. About 6'500 ft.



This place is at the beginning of the last mountain slope to the Principe Pass coming from Trentino. It is called Rifugio Vajolet and it is located at about 7'500 ft. The mountain peak you can see is the "Croda Re Alberto"

I've edited my post to add informations about photos as required by Topendtorque.
For any information Google the name of the places and you can get what you're searching.

Tomorrow and on, I'll carry with me everytime my compact camera...

Wait for something more, from the Dolomites and Alps!

Edit: Ah, I forgot to say that every places is between 6'500 ft and 8'700 ft - 2 on board and 'bout 80l of fuel. (TEMP. ISA more or less)

Edit 2: Changed Image Upload provider to Photobucket for the ones not seeing.

Cheers,
PE

Hi, PapaechoIT, thanks for those great photos, could you supply some details as well please, even history if significant - in a couple of words?

It is good to carry the camera and use it, something that a lot of us should have but didn't do over the years.

thanks

Post Monte Baldo (Small Alps - Italy)

I was looking in my old shots, when I was a trainee and found out this...

This is Monte Baldo area in Italy, the Monte Baldo can easily be find looking on the East side of Lago di Garda in the area West of Verona.

This shots were taken on a Robinson 22 helicopter few years ago (2008 reasonably).



Approaching Taccole's Canyon..



Inside Taccole's Canyon, preparing for low pass on Rifugio Telegrafo, to take the next pics.



Panoramic View of Rifugio Telegrafo and his Church. About 6'500 ft.



Rifugio Telegrafo's Church with his "Marble Christ" on the left side.



This photo was taken the day before, in the vanished attempt to get on top for the same photos.

Hope you like it...

Edit: RE-uploadedphotos from Photobucket, for the ones who can't see.

For the lovers, cockpit pic with VEMD in flight mode.

Hi Tech, nice colourless and difficult to see suit!



Sourrounding area.. Cima d'Asta on the background.

@VerticalFreedom,
but I can see the posted pix, and I think also the others can see it.
Ref. Topendtorque comment.
I'm normally posting using ImageShack.

Are you saying you're unable to see the photos?
