A Magnum P.I. chopper
Just in case you were wondering: This little story here is what happened to me as a young charter pilot pretty much exactly like we drew it. The only difference is the aircraft was a Jet Ranger. I have dealt with many low budget film crews in my life and they are very hard to work with. Most of them are way too excited about their cause and they expect you to do a lot of additional stuff they didn’t pay for. And somehow a lot of them had it in their minds that a Jet Ranger would cost the same amount as a taxi cab and they are always shocked about the real price. One company I worked for learned the hard way to collect the money BEFORE we did the flights.
Working in Hollywood is not always as glamorous as it may look on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” …
And if you are wondering why Chuck is wearing a jacket instead of his usual pilot shirt, you may need to tune in again this Friday. 😉
