The Helicopters (Civilian)

Hi everyone, Welcome to the USA TOUR!!

The USA-Tour Presidential meeting finished with great success after being transported by the USA Tour Pilots to Washington D.C.

It counted with the Presence of the heads of State of USA (J.F.K), Colombia, Germany, Canada, India, Turmekistan, and the United Kingdom.

The meeting was held in total secrecy, and the redacted summary remained for their eyes only -- so we remain unsure what was all about!

After the Presidential Leg, the USA Tour will now depart to the State of Connecticut, in a Celebration of Igor Ivanovich Sikorsky's Legacy.

Aircrafts

This is the second time the USA Tour will be completed flying helicopters. Whereas the first time we piloted Military based Rotatories, thus this time, switching gears, we will be on command of Helicopters used in Civilian Operations.

Any Kind of Civilian Operation will approve a participant rotatory, and the Tour will follow the following considerations to consider a participant aircraft:

  • Helicopters that were/are used for both military and Civilian use are approved
  • SAR (Search and Rescue) operations will be considered Civilian in Nature, and approved
  • Medical Brigades (Red Cross and others) will be considered Civilian in Nature, and approved
  • Police Helicopters (RHCP) will NOT be considered Civilian in Nature

Route:



We will fly a VFR route at an altitude of 1500-2000AGL. This time our helicopter flight will take us over the most dense population urban areas of the U.S. East Coast (and of the whole U.S as a matter of fact). Once departing the Capital City of Washington, we will head NE in a route that will overfly over Baltimore, the chesapeake bay, Wilmington, The Delaware River, The original U.S capital --and starting point of the Tour-- Philadelphia, then enter via the Hudson River over the Statue of Liberty, Slightly guided by the Hudson River We will overfly Manhantan, and Once we find La Guardia, we will let the Northern Shore of the Long Island Sound be our visual guide towards the state Of Connecticut's most populated city, Bridgeport, where we find Igor I. Sikorsky Memorial.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

Robinson 44, mates -- try it!


MI-6 being a heavy transport, I'd say it could be used, under the appropriate livery, of course.

Mi6 is fine

If there isn't a proper livery, what it counts is that the helicopter qualifies. So, that's good.

I'll probably be there with my McDonnell Douglas MD902 Explorer (I'll release a new version before the tour).

Or I'm there with a secret project (Italian Helicopter more I can't say).
