This strip is based on my career flying offshore. I got checked out on this Eurocopter AS355F1 Twin-Star which had one button on the dashboard labeled in french of which nobody knew what it did. When I asked my chief pilot during training “What does this button do?” he responded “I don’t know. Don’t touch it!”
…and I never did. Being many miles offshore is never a good environment to try new buttons.
I also wanted to remind everybody to come hang out at the Chino Airshow! I will be there on Sunday all day! FB where you guys are at and I will try to tweet my location.
Chances are I’ll be hanging around the F4U Corsairs when I’m not cruising with the Tumbling Bear who’s flying at the show.
