on the first day, after a long day of hiking, we got picked up by the helicopter to fly out of the mountains. there were 3 of us together, and normally the pilot only takes 2 people at a time, so he doesn't have anyone in the front. but this time he made an exception, and i got to sit up front by the pilot! he handed me a headset and i slipped it on, and we got to chat while flying. i told him it was my first helicopter ride and he asked if i was scared, and i was like "no! this is awesome!"
|laughing into my headset|
|hows that for an open door policy?!|
|ew, you can see how smokey the air has been!|
on my last flight, it was me and my supervisor heading out of the mountains. the pilot decided to have some fun with us, so he made the helicopter drop really fast. after we were done screaming, he then did it again! we screamed some more, and then we saw him look back and laugh. too fun :)
|yay for helicopter rides!|
