OK, so you've caught the bug; you're flying and you're hooked. Next comes the big question that bedevils nearly all pilots (and their spouses). Should I buy an aircraft? There's no doubt that owning has advantages over renting. But it also has drawbacks. And costs.
AOPA will answer some of the bigger questions that come up when trying to buy or rent, in a seminar at the twelfth annual AOPA Fly-in at AOPA headquarters in Frederick, Maryland, June 1. It is one of well over a dozen seminars being offered that day, on everything from spatial disorientation to plain old hangar talk. For a complete list of seminars, visit the AOPA Fly-In seminar page at AOPA Online.
Despite a dramatic decline in 2014 helicopter deliveries, forecasters at Honeywell Aerospace project a steady stream of deliveries over the next five years.
Bell Helicopter has made the first delivery of the Bell 429WLG (wheeled landing gear) in North America.
Garmin International will offer the GDL 84H and GDL 88H Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) datalink specifically designed for helicopters.
