UniformKilo.com is all about enhancing the experience of learning to fly helicopters using video.
Whether you’re a student pilot, a helicopter owner, an adventurer, or an instructor, I hope videos and the notes are useful and enjoyable. You’re welcome to join in with your views and experiences.
Some of the video footage is my own, and I will add to it as I shoot more. The rest is my favourite stuff from around the world.
I’m a helicopter instructor, and I have been flying since 1984.
First fixed wing, then, when the two-seat R22 helicopter came along in the late 1980s, I took a 35 hour conversion course, in ten days, at Oxford Air Training School gave me my PPL(H) in the pre-Beta R22s.
Over 1000 helicopter hours later, in R22s, B206s, and my favourite, the Robinson R44, I have flown throughout the UK, Europe, USA, and even to Australia following the Amy Johnson route. I now hold a CPL(H) and an Instructor Rating.
I offer safe exciting trial lessons for those who want to give it a go, rewarding PPL(H) courses, and “further training’ to those wanting to make the most of their PPL(H).
If you’re a recently qualified PPL(H) looking for someone to help you safely expand your experience, I’m available as a safety pilot, drawing on my many years flying helicopters in the UK and around the world.
