First Hovering Experience
#1
Hello,

Just coming back from Mosquito Europe (in France) by car (of course) to bring back to Belgium my XE and get my first solo hovering experiences. This is actually my second solo hovering flight,... the first one was 5 days ago in France with Didier Lagneaux. I never got to solo on R22 or any other helo, so my Mosquito XE offer me this first experience and i have to say it is an incredibly stable helicopter with very precise tail rotor autority. I am very happy and as many other on this forum, smile on face for hours :-))

Before this first hover, i did 28 hrs on dual training, 8 hrs on R22 and 20hrs on a Dynali H3 wich is clock rotating... good to have the opportunity to get experiences in differents rotorcrafts.

The second video is the departure of my firends from Dynali Company wich is not more than 6 kms from my place.

Thank's for your comment Dave. Those tall green things are poplar trees... With the wind they makes the sea sound on the beach  :-)

Trees.....
I've seen those in books before.
We have tumble weeds, and sand.
Endless sans?

Differents locations on the world... differents decors... Here we don't have sand so i don't have to worry about this aspect...

A thought just occured to me about dirt and sand etc.

Since I think most helicopters tend to build up as static charge while in the air, do you think that airborne dirt is attracted to the static charge and builds up more quickly than usual?

I'm thinking the dry air of the SW states along with the abundance of sand and dust would make those locations even more static attractants.

Curious if there is a noticeably build up of dirt or if you ever notice a static discharge on landing?

As a newbie, you should ask that to John or Dwight
