Just took my first helicopter lessons today at Epic at Meacham ( Fort Worth). What a blast! I felt comfortable after about 30 minutes able to maintain altitude in turns and that it was going to be an easy transition from fixed. Then , we auto-rotated ( LOVE IT) and I worked on hovering for 45 minutes. That brought me back down to earth, literally. I knew I was supposed to make miniscule adjustments and I really tried but the ability to hover 2-3 ft agl is an art. Rob, you gotta try this. I am very impressed with Epic. Equipment ( 2 R-22 and 1 R-44) are very well maintained. Great operation. Bought a block and planning on flying 2-3 days/week. Any other fixed wing guys make the transition here? Any recommendations?
