    Yay, happy summertime everyone!

    This is from our rooftop heliport, taken a few hours ago just before liftoff :)

    Such a cool pic ! Now I know if I ever see a bright orange Helicopter when I'm in LA I'll know to wave Smiley

    What is the protrusion on top of the windscreen divider - cable cutters??

    What a beautiful day it was...

    I landed a few hours ago after a training flight with a pilot from Singapore. The GPS image below shows our position near Newport Beach and the photo above shows the view.

     

    @RC, you must be very excited already about your upcoming trip to Hawaii, correct?

    @Enmanuel, haha it is a special paint to sample color. You should definitely wave at every helicopter you see when you're in LA just in case I'm in a different one

    @4trac, you are correct. It is the wire strike protection kit, which is an optional equipment installed on the aircraft to provide some protection in case of a wire strike.

    The Ritz Bar...

    I still had to fly Saturday morning, but in the afternoon it was time for fun and so Mrs. Pilot and I went to the Ritz for a late lunch and cocktails ;) The weather was gorgeous with a nice ocean breeze that was pleasantly refreshing rather than cold haha :)

    A shade of blackberry...

    I love this color filter a lot since it almost matches the shade of the cocktails we had at the Ritz. We currently have amazing sunsets and summer nights here in California-- perfect for a drive in the GT3... kiss

    Alejandro knows how to pick his cars, no doubt about it, even if I wouldn't go with a Carrera GT in this particular color.

    Getting in and out of my GT3 makes me smile as much today as it did on the first day. That's down to the clean and timeless lines of a 911 I guess ;)

    LA in black and white...

    ... always looks great and feels quite nostalgic.

    In this photo from one of my recent flights you can see Los Angeles City Hall in the lower right corner and the downtown skyscrapers, the U.S. Bank Tower being the tallest among them. We were on our way to Beverly Hills and Hollywood which is located way in the background and hidden from view by the haze.

    @throt and bluelines, thank you for your exceptional compliments! The Mrs. and I will take her out this coming weekend for our anniversary celebration!

    Roof-top Heliport @John Wayne

    As some of you know from the news Southern California received record-breaking rainfall yesterday. I have never seen the riverbeds and streets fill up so quickly with water.

    The rather short main runway at John Wayne Airport (5701 ft or 1738 m) is right next to our rooftop heliport and some airliners had to abort their approach/landing because of the adverse weather conditions and braking action on the wet runway.

    Luckily, after the heavy rain finally gave way to some sunshine, I was able to get in one training flight. The photo above is from about 13 hours ago and was taken with my iPhone just before sunset. My flight duration was 2 hours and as you can imagine, it was a welcome difference flying-wise. smiley
