    I Took my family and friends to Sumpter Oregon and went for a flight last Sat.
    Nice little chopper climbs fast and has plenty of power.
    It will hold three adults no problem.

    Hughes 300? Nifty little bubbletops.

    I rode a Bell JetRanger once, on a flying tour of Alcatraz Island in California. Had a 400 lb woman sitting next to me, and the pilot banks my way to give me a good photo op. Nice of him . . . and I'm being squeezed up against the door, praying the lock holds . . . [LMAO]

    Haven't ridden a whirlybird since.

    Is that a Hughes 300 or one of the Robinson helicopters? Robinson makes their choppers here, in Torrance, CA.

    I've crashed in two helicopters....both Huey's. One had the engine malfunction, and the other had the tail rotor shot to smithereens. Both were VERY scary, besides the crashing, for we were in "injun country" both times! Two crashes out of about 200 flights in helicopters isn't the greatest, but I'm still here!

    If you are going to crash in a helicopter, be sure to do EXACTLY what the nice pilot tells you to do....STAY in the helicopter until he says to get out!
