Small Helicopter, High Altitude and High Winds
And while we're at it toss in Friday the 13th. What could possibly go wrong?
Luckily nothing more than bad cinematography and poor audio. But you can clearly hear the winds playing havoc with the main rotor. We were bouncing around pretty good a couple of times and more than once the thought of "Autorotate? Riiiiiiiight!" crossed my mind.
Hat's off to Will Sanders of coloradovertical.com. He's a great pilot and tour guide. His videos are better, too. And remember folks, a helicopter doesn't fly so much as it beats the air into submission.
