Hurrah! I received my Heliops 2017 calendar today.

Not only that but it has a S-92-SAR on the January page and just a few hours previously I got an email from a S-92 SAR crewman about more training. How appropriate!

And a AW189 on the march page. Bingo! End of March sees the end of service for GAP-SAR South (CHC AW139) at Lee-on-Solent and a Bristow AW189 taking over.

So some very meaningful stuff in this year's issue for me. Thank you so much.

I wanted to fly since I was a kid. My Father was posted in Ft. Benning in the mid 60's. The Vietnam war was on so plenty of helicopter activity there. After high school, joined the Army and applied for flight school Dream came true...rated in 1970 and last flight 2010.

Hi Ned

I ORDERED and paid for 3 calendars and haven't received them so far. Did also sent you a PM here. Could you check if I will still get them?

Cheers

Hi Ned.
What to say, remember Magnum P.I.? Amazing, cannot forget that chopper flying into such scenic scenarios. At the end H369 was my first chopper, than was the H369FF, I've been on maintenance for both of them.
By the way, congratulations for your publication and Happy Christmas.

MUERMEL - All ordered calendars were airmailed out on the 10th of Dec as asked and answered previously. If you are in Europe can take up to ten days for them to get there.

An industrial estate very near to us had a helipad and I used to watch all sorts of helicopters flying in and out, mainly smaller machines, squirrels, jetrangers, gazelles,109s etc, it was a thrill every time I heard one start up and always watched to see which it was, so this was the catalyst for starting in helicopters. I still get a thrill being around helicopters so it was obviously the right thing to do, even if it hasn't been that good for my wallet!

ATTN: Everyone who won themselves a HeliOps calendar. Our less than competent printer included a bunch of seconds (ones used to setup the binding process) which had months missing etc, in with the normal calendars so any of you who received one of the seconds please drop me a PM and will send you a replacement. Sorry for the inconvenience, was only a small number but unfortunately had no idea where they ended up.

G-BFYA

During the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002, I was offered the chance to sit in the back of Sterling's Bolkow while the pilot Simon C practised the Ladies' Cycle course. I was accompanied by the lovely JJ who was at great pains to explain that the vibration was nothing to worry about. Not worried in the slightest, was my reply!

When we landed, no-one could have wiped the silly grin off my face. I proclaimed that I just had to do it. Within the year I got my PPL! And went on from there with so much support from many people here ... both online and in the flesh so to speak!

Special thanks to Alan, Roy, Dick, David B, Peter, JJ, Gerry, Tim, Helen, Zoran, and Paul!

Cheers

Is everyone checking their calendars, just want to make sure you didn't get some of the test run rejects that inadvertantly got mixed up with the normal ones. When you get your calendars in the mail please check them and make sure April, May and June are all there in sequence,. Thanks. Ned

It's not every day that an envelope arrives "par avion' international air mail.
My wife asked me "where's this from?" and when I looked at the shape I told her:
Kiwiland. Eyebrow raised.
So I opened it and presented to her this beautiful calendar and began leaving through the pictures of these marvelous machines .. she rolled her eyes.


Decision time: does it go in my office or my man cave? Office won.


Thank You, KiwiNedNZ, and Merry Christmas.

Hi Ned,
My calendar arrived today. It is an absolute hit again!
I just hope that I will be able to punch the hole perfectly centered again.
I think I will just leave the 2016 edition up and go through it once again. The 2017 version will go on the other end of my desk.

Thanks a lot for such a generous give-away. Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
