Hi. I'm new to your channel. I dreamed of flying when I was a kid. Someday I would like to fly and I think I might try helicopter flight. Why? Because it's there. It's been my lifelong dream and I think I might go after it.
So the question I want to ask the pilot is, how does he deal with no throttle correlation? How hard is it to develop a feel for it?
dun dun dun dun
DUN DUN dun
That pilot was excellent at flying that old bell. I want to learn and when I start taking lessons I hope the pilot is at least half as good.
wow Cool flies like a Dreamliner,0:13
no excuse for poor audio portion.
Every video has a random expressionless blank stare dude just standing around in them. Odd
Amazing video. Like I'm watching a movie
Used to live not far from there. Saw the Bell 47 often.
You've got to be joking. Looks like the most unsafe flying machine ever invented! No lock up on the blade like a locking torque converter on the centrifugal clutch. No battery to start it with in the field. How did they manage in Korea? Why did they never adapt a multiblade for better lift. Only way I would get onboard is if they were hauling my dead carcass!
Amazing a helicopter developed in the 40s is so smooth at taxying. Amazing. He was barely moving the stick.
Is it easy for small airplane pilots to transition to a Heli. Other than getting used to collective/throttle. Is it easier or harder to adjust vs if I wasn't familiar with small Cessnas, etc
The Bell 47...so beautiful and so simple.
The Bell 47 is one of the significant birds in aviation history both as the civilian model and as the H13.
If I was the guy in the tower I would take his helmet in shove it up his you know what. He should get out of the way of airplanes that need runways. He could have went the other way.
The first machine I trained in. The G2 had wooden blades. Then we were given the 206. Once licensed I moved up to the Astar. Lots of room and power but the old 47 was pretty cool. I liked the G4 as it had much more power and metal blades.
So where the stabilizer bar on the rotor head?
If he says "Yeah" or "Right" again, I'm going to reach through my screen and pimp-slap the shiznit out of him.
They should bring these back into production. They were cool little choppers. Robust and airworthy.
The gentle autorotation is no doubt due to the immense inertia on the Bell 47's blades.
