Meet A Rotorcraft Pro - George Dona, Lt Col USAF

Posted by Admin

RPMN: What is your current position? I’m the Director of Operations for the 129th Rescue Squadron, HH-60G Division, although I’ll soon be retired. RPMN: Tell me about your first flight? My first helicopter flight was in training at Fort Rucker, flying the Jet Ranger TH-67 as an Air Force student with the Army training cadre. There was pressure to be cool about it, but I had a hard time hiding my excitement. Actually, I was like a little kid. Just hovering ten feet in the infield was by far the most exciting and challenging flight I have ever done. I knew right away that flying helicopters was going to be my future. [Read More...]

My Two Cents Worth (April 2014) by Randy Mains

Posted by Admin

My Two Cents Worth (April 2014 Issue) by Randy Mains I love aviation humor. I love it because I’ve found it always carries an element of truth. Consider the following homework assignment purported to have been written by a fifth grade student at Jefferson School, Beaufort, SC. entitled: Why I want to be a Pilot When I grow up I want to be a pilot because it's a fun job and easy to do. That's why there are so many pilots flying around these days. Pilots don't need much school. [Read More...]

Meet a Rotorcraft Pro – Anthony Burson

Posted by Admin

Meet a Rotorcraft Pro – Anthony Burson RPMN: What is your current position? I am the Chief Pilot of UTFlight, the flight department of United Technologies. I am responsible for helicopter and fixed winged operations, both domestic and international. We have 36 pilots that operate a fleet of ten aircraft with bases in Hartford, Conn. and Charlotte, N.C. RPMN: Tell me about your first flight. My first flight was in a Piper Super Cub that was owned by a family friend. I was ten years old and remember that I could not see out the front wind screen. The flight was only about 20 minutes long but I knew then that flying was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. My first helicopter flight was in a Hughes 500 at the age of 23. I was working as an A&P mechanic and had just been trained on how to do rotor track and balance. I was so excited in that first ride that I had a hard time concentrating on what I was doing.

Meet a Rotorcraft Pro – Henrik Bjorklund

Posted by Admin

Meet a Rotorcraft Pro – Henrik Bjorklund RPMN: What is your current position? I’m a saw pilot at Rotor Blade. RPMN: What does Rotor Blade do? We perform aerial sidewall trimming of utility line rights-of-way. This is done with a ten-bladed saw that’s suspended below the aircraft. RPMN: Tell me about your first flight. It was my very first flight lesson at Bristow Academy in Florida. I absolutely loved how the helicopter maneuvered through the air and the sensation of hovering; hanging motionless in the air was absolutely fantastic. I had never been in a helicopter before I left Sweden and came to Bristow Academy, not even on the ground. So, when my instructor asked if I wanted to do an autorotation I simply said, “Yeah, sure,” and was wondering what he was talking about. I was in for a surprise. [Read More...]
