"Engine failures over 100K people", bit of an exageration don't you think!! Believe it or not a heli will pass 100 ft on its final approach and everthing in between. How many engine failures have the A III's had in the last 40 years?I'm sure the safest route in and out was flown, maybe you...

It's not unusual for people standing on beaches to throw stones at coast guard heli's, while flying low searching for missing people along our beaches.

If you plan on flying single pilot class aircraft like Robbies , jet rangers, A 109's, than a CPL/H is fine. If you hope to fly (co- p...
