    Nice photos Smiley but freezing cold. Brrr... Smiley

    We had 15°C in Bavaria yesterday, probably close to 20 or more in the sun. Was sitting with my wife on a terrace next to Lake Ammer, drinking some Cappuccino, wonderful day...no kids...no worries... Smiley Smiley Smiley

    @Joost and RC: Over the last few years I have become increasingly intolerant to low temperatures, especially over longer periods of time and I'm not even talking about freezing temperatures...angry

    @rhino: Thanks for your birthday wishes! It was a wonderful day.

    Thank you so much guys!

    @Enmanuel: I will do my best, but I can't make any promises haha. smiley

    @Targa Tim: Good question. I would say both compliment each other in a very pleasant way. If I absolutely had to choose between the two it would have to be flying. Have you seen the new Mission Impossible trailer and featurette? Tom Cruise is flying the B3e Airbus helicopter (which I train in); it outperforms everything in its weight class and is for me the equivalent of an RS on the track. kiss

    It's not much warmer in the air, but I was not expecting it to be. Also, no matter how hard I look I've never yet seen any sharks while flying, just some dolphins and a gray whale once. broken heart

    Yay for 12,500 flight hours! I was very excited and proud when I hit this mark last Friday. Like I have mentioned before, the longer I do this the more I like it. It is so special being airborne and racing through the air without having to deal with traffic, especially in LA haha :)

    Whenever I’ll be in your region, I want to book a flight with you. Smiley

    Have only been in Jet Rangers so far and didn’t really enjoy the ride as much as I expected it to be. Maybe the ride gets better with more rotorblades but I found the lack of smoothness and the general flight behaviour irritating. I have to add that I love flying in planes and was contemplating to make a license already.


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Sorry about your experience Ferdie. More rotor blades usually provide a smoother ride, but aircraft weight also influences the ride; light aircraft are all more subject to turbulence compared to larger/heavier ones.

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Yes, the bigger the airplane, the smoother the ride.

    I had back to back rides with Phenom 100 & 300. The 300, the bigger plane, is definitely a smoother ride!

    I also had back to back helicopters rides also, a Robinson R66 vs a Airbus H130. I enjoyed the Airbus one a lot better!

    From what Ferdie described he may also have been getting used to the much greater tendency of helicopters to yaw, compared to fixed wings tendency to roll.  I think for people used to fixed wings this “feels” very different and can be a source of discomfort until they get accustomed to it.  By now I like yaw and rolling in a small fixed wing seems a pain...

    Didn't think of that. Good point.

    does anyone have experience with Hondajet? wondering how engine mount affects ride?

    I flew on it before.

    The ride actually is quite nice, slightly bigger and it is a bit quieter than the Phenom 100.

    But like all small jets, during landing and take off, a bit of wind will cause it to sort of 'unsettled'.

    I still prefer the Phenom 100 if I am flying alone or with a friend, it's slightly faster.

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Thanks Nick


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. I will try out some other helicopters (and pilots) and report back. 

    What was most irritating to me is that, unlike in a car, on a motorbike or in a plane, the change in elevation or direction is not related to speed. In the former examples, the faster you go the more pronounced the reactions on equal steering in puts, in a helicopter you could stand still over ground yet climb or change direction suddenly. Very irritation to me... apart from the lack of smoothness per se.

    I am sure they have done a great job, but I am not sure I would buy the first example of a brand new product line.

    Lawnmower yes but aeroplane? Not so sure..

     


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    After years of Challenger 300 and 600, Citation X, Falcon 50, we have lately been very impressed with the G400... Quiet, large hold... Pretty spiffy and significantly cheaper than GIV.


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

     

     

     

    Going out tonight...

    We have beautiful, warm summer weather and I’m taking Mrs. Pilot out :)

    I have a nice little surprise for her and this beautiful rose which reminds me of Sydney; after dinner we will most likely see a new movie.

    Okay, time to push back, wake up the RS engine, and burn lots of Shell V-Power ;)
