Helimove - My Story

The Beginning

I have always been fascinated by helicopters as many young boys are. I had never considered that I could actually take control of one however until I was bought a half hour trial lesson for my birthday. My trial lesson was in a Hughes 269 Reg G-HFLA at Norwich Airport with Alan Mcleod on 17 April 2004.

Although I enjoyed the experience very much, I still didn't consider that I would actually be able to get my licence until I sat back and reflected on the experience. Soon I realised that if I really wanted it enough, then I could do it. If I found I could not do it, then I didn't want it enough.
