The day to day routine of a helicopter pilot flying in the Gulf of Mexico does not suffer from having “too much” variety in it. Once you’re assigned to a job, and have flown that contract for awhile, you’ll essentially figure out the routine and settle into a nice pattern. The only time that reallyContinue reading “Gulf Of Mexico: Operation Turtle Watch”

First of all I want to say thank you to everyone that’s been reading the latest posts, commenting, and messaging. Some loyal readers that had been waiting in the wings for me to start putting content back out – and some new readers! Welcome! I’ve been getting questions about certain aspects of being a helicopterContinue reading “Gulf of Mexico: Life Off-Shore (Pics)”
Flying in the Gulf of Mexico (Pics)
Even though I haven’t been writing for the past year and a half (give or take) I still get messages on this site, instagram, and on Facebook. It’s been a long time since I managed any helicopter pilot groups on FB so that last one is a bit of a mystery to me. Let’s rollContinue reading “Flying in the Gulf of Mexico (Pics)”
Start. Stop. Start. Stop….Start?
So here we are again, a year between posts and I’m writing that I’ll do better, I’ll post regularly, I’ll stay more involved in the blog process. We’ve been here before. This past year has certainly been an interesting one, and there are a few reasons why “the roaming pilot” hasn’t been roaming much atContinue reading “Start. Stop. Start. Stop….Start?”
Flying with Class…Business Class
Back in the start of March I had to fly back to the United States. I’d been invited to sit on a mentorship panel for up and coming helicopter pilots at HAI’s Heli-Expo 2016, and to participate in the Mil2Civ (Military to Civilian) mentorship and transition workshops that were being held in Louisville, Kentucky. IContinue reading “Flying with Class…Business Class”
What’s Better – Color or Black and White Travel Photos?
It’s an age old question, since the introduction of color photographic materials people, photographers, and nit-picky mothers having photos made of their kids have debated this point. So which one is better color or B&W photography?
On life, turning 30, and goals.
“The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.” – Robert Frost Tomorrow is January 29th, and once more I’ll be marking a birthday. To say that it is exciting to have made it this far would be an understatement – though a bit of a tired cliche as EVERYONE seems toContinue reading “On life, turning 30, and goals.”
London in…maybe 7 hours
My leave in the United States seemed to end far quicker than it began and I quickly found myself boarding British Airways for a flight back to my real job – being a helicopter pilot. If I could be paid to just travel and write this blog, and I mean…that would be nice. Anyways, IContinue reading “London in…maybe 7 hours”
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (Pics + VIDEO!!)
I’ve been saying that I was going to catch up on my blog for some time now, but today I finally decided to at least knock out a few of the posts I’ve got waiting in the wings. For my, two…is it even two…followers. The thing with blogging is that unless you’re consistent (like IContinue reading “Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (Pics + VIDEO!!)”
HAI’s HELI-EXPO 2015 (part 1)
Last year I tried to keep summaries for each day of HeliExpo and post them up here, that would end up proving to be a really tough task. It was my first HeliExpo and I made the naive mistake of thinking that I would have anything that resembled free time during the week. My daysContinue reading “HAI’s HELI-EXPO 2015 (part 1)”
