A blow by blow account of obtaining your Helicopter Pilot License
Back in 2008, Steve Baker documented the process of obtaining his Helicopter Pilot License on the Bladeslapper website. Steve is now one of our Snr Charter Pilots. The links below are a record of his thoughts and reasons for obtaining his pilots licence. We have shared these with you here as an encouragement to all who seek the thrills of being in control of a helicopter. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we did!
