Hello My Name is Andy and I am wanting to be a part of your outfit. Flying in general has been my families legacy, but more importantly the Huey got my Dad through 2 tours in Vietnam. I dont have my ticket yet, but I have accumulated 26 (Real World) hours in Hughes 300, Bell 206L3 and a bell 407. I have over 600 hours in virtual (FSX and DCS) helicopter time. I got an opprotunity to watch a youtube video of you guys doin formation training with 10 helicopters and I was impressed. I look forward to hearing from ya.

Very Respectfully,

(A/229) Andy

Hey Andy!


Damned good bunch of guys around here. Pretty relaxed format, everyone gets along, no "prima donnas", and if you ever have questions about ANYTHING (flying, computers, etc.)...then I promise you, someone will be back with an answer pretty darn quickly.

I too come from an aviation legacy. My father started as an infantry medic in Korea, survived Vietnam as helo Warrant Officer, and generally provided me with a great life as a young lad, and a "yardstick" (both flying and life wise) that I use to measure myself quite often. I lost him (and my dear Mother) 25 years ago, and miss them daily.
I'll be retiring from Delta Airlines (B757/767) fairly soon (prob 2 years or less) after 34 years, and am totally looking forward to spending FAR TOO much time online with this collection of muggers and mal-contents. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Again welcome! Someone from the "head shed" will be by to get you sorted soon!
