Hmmm... I wonder if the same thing will happen in my area? My 450 and 550 spent a lot of time in the air at the local soccer field this summer, fall and early winter. There were all of those dog folks walking thier dogs and looking. I suspect a few had strong desires of the heli kind. These folks are very easy prey for the mall kiosk heli vendors. Of course none of these folks ever bothered to come over and ask anything about what I was doing. Folks you have to admit, when we are observed flying, we make it look easy. We just stand there and have our birds flying in the sky. What could be easier? So peaceful, so relaxing and so stress free.

Hey I just realized that for pilots this is a very special day!!!!! This is the 21st of December. You know what that means?????? After today, the days start getting longer with more sun which means more time in the air! YES!!!!!
Here in SE Michigan while you are right that the days will start getting longer in total daylight now,, the shift to longer afternoon light started on the December 12th.. I have already picked up two minutes of afternoon light.. But not that it matters to me,, it's still staying darker longer in the morning as this doesn't start to change till January 4th...

I actually had a chance to take the 450 out this morning for a couple of lights. All the ingredients were there. Clear sky, comfortable temps, no wind. I had a great time remembering how to fly a 450. I have to tell you, FBL spoils you.


LESS THAN 9000 MESSAGES TO GO!!!! Come guys, lets do it for RYAN! GRAB THAT 20,000,000!!!

You know, Ryan. There are gift wrapping services available at the malls. Of course they may be a bit busy now with all of you last minute PANIC shoppers.
