Hot temps in Cyprus

Mrs P-RB and self are both recuperating in Cyprus(Pafos/Paphos) after both being a little poorly, however nearly twice per day a Yellow and Black Stripped R44 fly's around mid day-ish at about 600/800 ft and again later, creating a racket of mega Blade slap always at the point turning over the old Forts and again at the end of the small Pafos Bay, temps here at about 29/32 Deg C, but the pilot always seems to be loosing height and slowing on his tight turns,
anyone any Intel on who it may be, for no one here at the Hotel knows anything about said heli.
The assault on the blades is IMO extreme but yet occurs every flight O/H.

Peter R-B back in blighty tomorrow

Yes, it is Skyraiders. They are based at a private landing site in Yeroskipou, near Paphos. Ex mil pilot/owner.

however nearly twice per day
You're a helicopter pilot complaining about a helicopter flying less than two times per day? Oh the humanity!

That's not hot! Come over to outback Australia where the R22s are running in 40 degree heat tens of feet off the ground doing mustering...
THEN you'll hear some assault on some Robinson blades!
