    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Are these flights for rotorcraft only?
    Yes. No fixed wing aircraft please.

    I sometimes like to fly weird stuff. What exactly are you calling a rotorcraft?
    1. It must have one or more rotors that generate lift (so no Jet Packs!).
    2. It must be capable of hovering in place, as well as controlled vertical take-off and landing (so no autogyros).
    Other than that, anything is OK. So in addition to helicopters, you can bring (for example) your Rotodynes and Verticopters.

    I'm really new/inexperienced with rotocraft and concerned I'll make a fool of myself.
    No problem. These flights are to have fun. We all start somewhere and you'll find people are supportive.

    Will we always be landing at airports?
    Sometimes, yes, but not always. Sometimes we'll land at heliports or on helipads. But sometimes we may land on grassland or a beach, or even on a lake (with advance warning, of course, so we fly with floats!).

    Will we always fly direct between stops?
    Not always. Very often we will follow natural features such as valleys, rivers and shorelines.

    Will we fly the same speed each week?
    Not necessarily. Our slowest flights, at 80 knots, allow pilots to choose from the greatest range of rotorcraft, but be prepared for occasional change.

    Will we always start one week where we left off the previous week?
    Sometimes, yes. Some flights will be "tours" and be part of a series. But others will be one-off flights.

    Will you be subjecting us to trivia and trivia questions?
    No! Not on these flights.
