Will try and post a photo later.

Greetings to high skilled professional operating N registered Bell 407 from MV Samar.

Violation of general safety and local 9A air law are just small sacrifice on your safety culture.
Take off and landing from mooring within old city is prohibited within civilization, you know.
While this was city with theater, on your place now days called Manhatan, may be only few wigwams present.

PS
if you do not mind, go kill yourself somewhere else

Question for everyone:- What would you say is enough hours to be safe if you sit around a lot?

Obviously English cannot be your first language, but to to state 'go kill yourself somewhere else'????? really? How do you know the operator or pilot doesn't have a specific exemption for flying there?


Oh and the prize for the worlds worst website ever goes to :-
www.heliFOR.eu

You are free to support cowboys...
But this one is reported and will be prosecuted in accordance to law.
Thank you for promoting that web site

Firstly, the last thing I would do is support a cowboy/dangerous operation. Anyone who knows me knows this to be the case. I asked how you knew that the correct exemptions weren't in place. I also wondered why you'd actually state 'go kill yourself elsewhere'. That is not the sort of thing i'd expect to hear on this forum nowadays. But hey, its a free world eh?

ps I was hardly promoting a website that doesn't work. its sh*t.

I must have gotten on the wrong railway track as I always thought that helicopter jobs were tough jobs, in the soul-draining heat or freezing cold.....
Show up late with the Morning Newspapers, the fresh fruit, and talk out of turn to the Girlfriends.....and see how hot and cold the Boss runs!

It's a bit of an insult to websites to call it a website...

That yacht is kind of "meat market" therefore speed is irrelevant, that boat is source of all sort of troubles, every summer.

For above folks...
Amazing, parked web site is problem, "professionals" operating like cowboys - pushing the all other in danger, are not.
You both must be the WEB experts

Are you trying to say a helicopter did something you don't like in Manhattan.
Clever trick, considering the Samar is in the Adriatic...

Sure it is in Adriatic, inside Croatian territorial waters,
but some "smart web designers" have no clue about 9A meaning.
Old city of Hvar, harbor area - is the place of incident.
Bad luck, because some local aborigines, know few articles from air law

9A plus

I think it might help to get your point over if you could get someone to put your meaning in English that we can all understand.
I would agree that the website doesnt actually work.

a) you are not able to understand above?
b) that web site and company are dormant since 4 years ago, reason: the team is contracted to work
on one specific not yet disclosed vertical project.
WEB may be live again, soon. But all that is not relevant to this case, except for some old wa**ers here.

To all otheres
Regarding the PPRuNe, case is closed.
Case is reported in real world

NOTE: Personally I like helicopters on yachts, but all must be done in proper & decent way.
Low lever flyovers over the city may attract few people on board,
but also bring serious consideration in community opinion, about vertical transport and operations.
Therefore all "cowboys" must be reported to competent authority.

As Ascend Charlie has stated. The specific references and details of what you are alluding to would help in the discussion. Then those that wish could make an informed opinion.
