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.

"In almost all wars, the sight of foreign troops brought fear and terror to the local people, destruction and often senseless killing of local citizens. However, the sight of the American GI always brought smiles and joy to the local French people. They knew we were there to liberate, not to conquer; to help, not to terrorize."

Captain Leo T. Hury, M-Company, 330th Infantry Regiment, 83rd Infantry Division.

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.... ;)

I always love watching the Sea Stallion fly over.

Heavy Metal, Shitters, Sea Stallions, Super Stallions, anything in the H-53 Family is awesome.

 

My favorite is the Ch-53E Super Stallion.

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.
