Meet A Rotorcraft Pro - George Dona, Lt Col USAF

Posted by jhadmin

RPMN: What is your current position?

I’m the Director of Operations for the 129th Rescue Squadron, HH-60G Division, although I’ll soon be retired.

RPMN: Tell me about your first flight?

My first helicopter flight was in training at Fort Rucker, flying the Jet Ranger TH-67 as an Air Force student with the Army training cadre. There was pressure to be cool about it, but I had a hard time hiding my excitement. Actually, I was like a little kid. Just hovering ten feet in the infield was by far the most exciting and challenging flight I have ever done. I knew right away that flying helicopters was going to be my future.

My Two Cents Worth (April 2014 Issue)

by Randy Mains

I love aviation humor. I love it because I’ve found it always carries an element of truth. Consider the following homework assignment purported to have been written by a fifth grade student at Jefferson School, Beaufort, SC. entitled:

Why I want to be a Pilot

When I grow up I want to be a pilot because it's a fun job and easy to do. That's why there are so many pilots flying around these days. Pilots don't need much school.

The Less the Merrier: The Perils of Additional Insured

Posted by jhadmin

The Less the Merrier: The Perils of Additional Insured

Written by Jeff Fleming, Leading Edge Insurance Agency

As a helicopter owner, especially a non-commercial owner, you may have been asked by the county or city that owns the airport where you park or hangar your aircraft to be added to your insurance as an "additional insured." You probably said, "Sure, why not?" Then you contacted your agent to get the additional party added, and the agent subsequently went to the insurance underwriter to complete the request. But exactly what was the airport/city/county really asking for?

From Tip to Tail: Precision HeliParts Delivers

Posted by jhadmin

Whether it’s something routine, like overhauling one of its many starter generators, or a more urgent need, like replacing an N1 tach indicator that just quit on a helicopter stuck out in the field, when All American Aviation needs a part they contact Precision HeliParts (PHP).

There is a tongue-in-cheek saying that “A helicopter is 5,000 moving parts all trying to do you bodily harm!” Of course, I strongly disagree with the latter part of that statement. However, since every helicopter is indeed made up of thousands of parts, the scenarios above play out hundreds of times every day in a variety of ways all over the world. Fortunately, for thousands of operators in over 60 countries, PHP is part of their solution.
