Thanks for the warm welcome ya'll. I primarily fly the Sikorsky S-76 now transporting personnel to offshore rigs. The Hughes 500 as you mention is a serious workhorse. It's the civilian version of the military's OH-6A Cayuse.Good to have you here. I love helicopters. Wish I could afford to learn to fly them. If I may ask, what do you fly? I think my favorite helicopter has to be just about any of the Hughes MD500 variants. Those things are just so small, agile, and cool.
