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...]

The Less the Merrier: The Perils of Additional Insured

Posted by Admin

The Less the Merrier: The Perils of Additional Insured Written by Jeff Fleming, Leading Edge Insurance Agency As a helicopter owner, especially a non-commercial owner, you may have been asked by the county or city that owns the airport where you park or hangar your aircraft to be added to your insurance as an "additional insured." You probably said, "Sure, why not?" Then you contacted your agent to get the additional party added, and the agent subsequently went to the insurance underwriter to complete the request. But exactly what was the airport/city/county really asking for? [Read More...]

From Tip to Tail: Precision HeliParts Delivers

Posted by Admin

Whether it’s something routine, like overhauling one of its many starter generators, or a more urgent need, like replacing an N1 tach indicator that just quit on a helicopter stuck out in the field, when All American Aviation needs a part they contact Precision HeliParts (PHP). There is a tongue-in-cheek saying that “A helicopter is 5,000 moving parts all trying to do you bodily harm!” Of course, I strongly disagree with the latter part of that statement. However, since every helicopter is indeed made up of thousands of parts, the scenarios above play out hundreds of times every day in a variety of ways all over the world. Fortunately, for thousands of operators in over 60 countries, PHP is part of their solution. [Read More...]

My Two Cents Worth - Randy Mains

Posted by Admin

My Two Cents Worth by Randy Mains Here’s a question for you: What’s the difference between a $14 million full-motion, level D flight simulator and a $500 couch? As I was to find out, the answer to that question is … not a lot. In the January 2014 issue of Rotorcraft Pro, there were several very well written and informative articles about flight simulators. Lyn Burks, the editor-in-chief of Rotorcraft Pro, had written an article about his experience flying a S76 C+ flight sim at the CAE training center in Whippany, New Jersey. Ryan Mason wrote an insightful article entitled “Trends in Helicopter Simulation.” Reading those two articles reminded me of the couch, and what a wonderful training tool it is. [Read More...]
