      I figured Lopez's Garage was the best place for this.

      The Helicopter Thread! Whats your favorite chopper? Do you fly them? Etc, etc....

      I currently fly an R22 and R44, but I have also flown an EC120 in the past. Here are some pics and videos of my exploits.

      I have been reading constantly, and i have a nasty sore throat. But it was all worth it. I'm now a Commercial Rated Helicopter Pilot with an Instrument Certification.

      Hi, I'm not positive if this is where I should report this, but here goes....

      Half the time i go to the main page, or click the "rvb has a new video" link on my homepage, I'm redirected to the facebook become a fan of rvb page. Its not a major hastle, but it is obviously not working quite the way it was intended.

      Again, sorry if I posted in the wrong place or someone else already brought this up. I looked and didn't find anything.

      Thanks!

    • flew my first turbine helicopter!

      Yesterday, I got to fly my first turbine helicopter, an EC120.

      Heres a pic of me landing it at Torrance Airport.

      img7260r.jpg

      img7262.jpg

      All in all, I flew from Orange County Muni, to Torrance, to Hawthorne, to LAX, back to Torrance, then to Long Beach, and back to Orange.

      Here are some shots from inside along the way:

      And a video that my passenger took on my departure from LAX. 100 ft over 747s then down to the beach and 50' off the deck at 120 kts.

      That was an amazing day.

    • Tomorrow is an important day.

      10 years ago

      1nF3Rn0

      Tomorrow will be my first flight in a turbine helicopter.

      Some of you might not understand the significance, so i will explain. Helicopters have 2 categories.

      Piston powered: slow, small, noisy helicopters that are used in smaller operations and for training because they are cheep to use.

      Turbine powered (turboshaft engines): fast, powerful, often big helicopters, used by most major operators for everything.

      It is a major turning point in a pilot's career when they upgrade to a turbine helicopter, and tomorrow i will get to pop my "turbine cherry"....

      And just for some reference, here is the helicopter i usually fly right now:
      photopzt.jpg
      R22 (2 seat piston)

      The biggest piston helicopter I've flown to date:
      robinsonR44helicopter.jpg
      R44 (4 seat piston)


      And what i will be flying tomorrow (stock photo). I will get one of me with it before i fly:
      EC120_PH_ECE_SIDE.JPG
      ec120B (5 seat turbine)

      Oh, and I'm flying it to Catalina island on top of everything! Tomorrow is going to be fucking epic.

    • Great flight today.

      10 years ago

      1nF3Rn0

      So, today was epic. I did some canyon running, flew over my house, landed on some bush runways, and in some tight places. Anyways. Here are a couple pics/videos.... I would edit it so it had some music, but i don't know how. If anyone wants to take a stab, let me know....



      Me at the bush landing strip. It would take a crazy fixed wing pilot to fly into this place....

      Canyon running. Sound is off, so just turn your speakers off...

      First we had the fuel system disasters from last season. Now we have Kimi not making it past Q1, and Masa almost running out of fuel causing him to loose 2 places.

      What the hell is wrong with them?

      How much did you spend in getting your helicopter license? I've always wanted to get a helicopter license, but didn't think I could afford it.

      Nope, this was in Rock Falls Illinois, which is right off I-88, I didn't know which way you took toward Chicago, but if you came from STL then you would have been way out of the way.

      12 years ago

      Hmmm... must not have been you then. I live too far north of there. I saw a Mini that looks just like yours (same color, black rims), it left a Burger King. I tried catching up to it to get more detail on it, but I hit a red light.

      If you're interested, I found this site that sells rebuilt classic Minis with VTEC Honda engines, though the cars are rather expensive at $25,500 or so for one with the D15 VTEC. Check it out at www.superfastminis.com

      Sponsorship? That's just too awesome! Glad that is going well for you. You may want to think about buying another Mini for the street if your income is going to rely on the racing.

      Things are going well for me. I am heading to Bishop soon to take the Hummer to White Mountain Peak (14,000+ ft!). Naturally, I will take pictures.

      Glad all is well with you. Drop me a line when you get back to Smog City Los Angeles.
