We have a guy on the fire department who works a few weeks a year as pilot. Just different contracts. Makes around $200,000 a year.

Cant wait till Monday, with good weather ill be stalling my plane :D No a Spin but still gonna be interesting. i wish we could do spins but you pretty much have to force the plane to spin cause it will break the spin it self real safe, also people die doing this so ya lol. ( btw a spin is where you stall the plane on uncoordinated flight, so while pitched up and banked causeing the plane to dive and spin like you see in the movies when the planes stall.)

Sounds interesting, I grew up in the military, or Air-force to be exact. I've flown around in CF-18's for awhile with pilots I knew and one of them did something like that to scare me. Fun times.

Generally speaking, a stalled heli = dead. Posted Image

Helicopters are just a bunch of parts beating the hell out of each other. Nothing amazing about that. ;)

Next summer I will be training with some CF heli pilots and a shout out to all the SAR-TECH'S from 442 Squadron (CFB Comox) Helping the RCMP
Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

I'm actually in the process of trying to get on with CBP to drive some of their 950hp Midnight Express law enforcement boats and hopefully get to play with the new toys of the future..

Windsor is having an annual air show this week. Makes me want to be a pilot when I'm older. Although I don't think they'd accept anyone who has (or had, if you got surgery) into their programs.

I'm pretty sure you need to have 20/20 vision without surgeries. I don't know if it's true, but it makes sense.
