Currently teaching fixed wing trained people to fly choppers. The looks on their face when they realise the world is their playground and runways are for models cracks me up every time.

Thank you also Ned. An amazing calendar this time round.

Still working on the production of major sub assemblies for Mil & Civ helicopters. (Always trying to remind people they DON'T want to be mentioned on Nat Geo's Mayday).

Fantastic as always Ned!

Another year full of fantastic flying around this magical country in the venerable EC135. Clocked over 1000hrs on the type this year on my way to the next hour milestone of 4000!

safe and happy flying to all!

Ned, I flew helos for 16 yrs,from 1964, in the RAF,on Support,SAR,and as a TP,and MTP,,from the smallest,`Skeeter` to a French `Super-Frelon`.Later,after retirement,flew freelance for a number of years until `our age` limits stepped in.So about 4250 hrs in about 26 types.Flew a further 4250 hrs on the C-130 during my later RAF career.However,I always have a soft-spot for the `Gazelle`(see `655 Sdn Retirement thread,p1,#12`),in it`s early development phase,and hope all those who flew it later,felt the same.I had 3 forced-landings in Whirlwinds( 1 t/rotor departure,2 engine-failures),no injuries,a/c repaired)..There is a book by an ex-AAC Pilot`Think like a Bird `,although he flew Beavers and Austers,and later `Lynx`,that is how I think of my helo flying,from a `comfortable` chair...(are there any comfortable helo seats...?) Nowadays I get to fly a C-172 occasionally,but it`s not the `same`..!!
I think the pic of Earl Watters firefighting should be `Picture of the Year`,,a real `cracker`...!
Fly safe out there,guys and gals....

Thanks Ned, great pics as always. I'm out of the industry now, doing Engineering for a few years before retirement, but I can't resist having a crack at getting next year's calendar, please!

Most satisfying is taking people for their first flight in a helicopter, especially nervous fliers.
And the enjoyment virtually everyone gets from the purest form of flight.
Only had one person ask me to go back and land, and that was because the high frequency of the turbine was affecting his tinnitus, quite painfully.

Ned, you are the best!
Great calendar, and all the way from New Zealand.
Thank you!
It's up at my desk at work, and I let the rest be envious.

I started wrenching on US Army Cobras in 1983, still at it as a helo mech 40 years later. Currently working on H225, great aircraft.
Ned, great service you are offering. Have gotten these calendars for a few years now.
