My Journey to Becoming a Helicopter Pilot in Alaska

Here's a some information about the author of this blog in his own words: "In 1987, I earned my Private Pilot Fixed Wing initial rating flying with the Aero Club, Hill Air Force Base, Ogden, Utah. I flew off and on through the years with approximately 100 hours mostly flown in the Cessna 152, and the Piper Warrior. In September 08', I decided to go for my true passion and started flying helicopters at the Birchwood Airport, here in Alaska with Alyeska Helicopters, learning to fly the Robinson R-22. I earned my Rotorcraft-Helicopter Private Pilot additional rating in March of 09' and my Commercial Pilot Rotorcraft-Helicopter initial rating the same year in November. I am on my way to becoming a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) helicopter pilot and this is my log of those experiences on this journey. I'm also hoping to use this blog as a guide and potential student resource for future helicopter pilots as they progress through flight training, and an outlet for my own experiences in becoming a helicopter pilot here in Alaska, a beautiful place to learn and fly. Also included are other miscellaneous ramblings that may pop into my head along the way. I'm retired from the Air Force, enlisted E-8."
