# 7. Reporters never learn. 50 years ago we had a lecture from a fireman (as they were then described) who expressed his disenchantment with news reports in which firemen were invariably described as "wearing breathing apparatus" -- like WOW! He said it was now full time to describe them as "wearing trousers."

Reference Post #18. It which it was said, "Literally hundreds of N register aircraft permanently based in the UK." Perhaps a little exaggeration but I'm assuming it refers to both fixed- and rotary wing. If true, where are they all based and who is taking care of them?

If helicopters are not for you, WTF are you on the Rotorheads Section of this forum?

Saint Jack, a little hyperbole in the statement, difficult to know exactly how many UK based aircraft carry FAA registration, they often hide behind trustee organisations. One UK based trustee currently has 957 N registered aircraft on its books, as the trustee is the registered owner you have no idea who the "real" owner, or beneficiary, is, or where the aircraft is based. The helicopter, which this thread is about, is "owned" by a US based trustee. A 2009 photo citing Richard Mathews as the then owner.

The only way you can have an aircraft on the N reg if you live in the UK and are not a US citizen is by using a trust.
