A BIG thank you to everyone on PPRuNe/rotorheads for all the discussions, debates, debacles and camaraderie over the last 20+ years on PPRuNe.
We've put the (rotary) world to rights several times over and I have enjoyed lobbing a hand grenade into many a heated discussion over those years!

I am proud to have played a small part helping three members become commercial helicopter pilots (and I hope it's not in vain during these turbulent times).
Even after I retired from flying 12 years ago and from aviation - 2 years ago.....I still continue to learn from young and old alike.
Aviation just keeps giving!

I now find that I am so far behind the drag curve regarding the rotary world, it's time to shut the hangar doors.

30 years "winding up" and hopefully, now: 30 years - "winding down".

To all helicopter pilots - Respect..... Remember: Aviate. Navigate. Communicate.
(and keep the damn ball in the middle FFS!).

TC signing off.

Have a nice break TC but I need you back here in best analytical mode for first quarter of 2021 when the MCA issue the Contract Notice for the new SAR helicopter contract.

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before
'Relax' said the night man
'We are programmed to receive
You can checkout any time you like
But you can neverleave!
