Hard choice since there are a lot of awesome helicopters out there. But I'll have to say the Black Hawk certainly is one of my favorites simply because that's the image I see thinking of a helicopter.

Doing everything but flying! You know what they say about the differences between an Apache and a Hoover vacuum cleaner......

That's photoshopped! No, really, I do like the Apache. It makes is the sole aircraft that makes the Blackhawk that much cooler ;) By the way, getting my FLIR training tomorrow night, Will take an hour to be signed off, how long does it take an Apache pilot to qual? ;) You know I love ya brother, gotta have Apache pilots around, poker is so much funner to have someone to take money from.

FLIR, huh? Any idiot can qualify with Gen 3 FLIR. Try flying the Bag on Gen 1 FLIR! Pucker factor through the roof!

 

Honestly, I've got all the respect in the world for the Blackhawk. It's a great platform that's matured very well. The Mike is a beast. But it is amusing as all hell when Hawk guys find out you're a -64 driver. It's like blood in the water to them and they've just gotta start picking.... must be trying to compensate for something.... ;)

How's the air conditioning?

Look Jon, no one pilot is forced to look at the back of another man's head! I too, look forward to the day I can move over to the Lacota so that I can put overseas deployments behind me, not have to worry about sweating to death. I'm jealous

Our AC isnt bad though. There is nothing like flying doors open on a hot day. It has actually been approved for us to remove the pilot and copilot doors but we havent tried it yet. I can just see our pilots dropping their Iphones, drink bottles, and knee boards out.
