Sharing the Fascination of Helicopter and Airplane Flight for 26 Years
When you’ve been taking a trip piloting a helicopter or airplane just once, you’ve had a unique taste of the sense of space, you’re astounded of the way time seems to contract because of the way you’re moving quicker than ever – everyone seems to change the way they look at the world after such an experience. But such an experience relies on the safe transport that the aircraft provides.
To maintain the best condition of the aircraft and provide safe flight is where the mechanic/engineer plays a huge part. If the engineer doesn’t service and maintain the aircraft, it can’t fly.
It’s the mutual responsibility of the engineer and pilot to keep the aircraft airworthy.
There’s a strong connection between a trustworthy maintenance and the requests for maintenance from aircraft owners. There’s a sense of pride in a mechanic to be entrusted with a very expensive aircraft; there’s no end to the pleasure he takes in this task.
Everyone longs for the world of the open skies. This is not very far away – if one has the desire, it’s right within arm’s reach. Why don’t you fly a bit with us?
