Whenever these low-level joyflights get posted it makes me wish so much to be able to throw a machine around at 20 feet without any repercussions. Unfortunately the thought of everything that could possibly go wrong is a pretty strong deterrent.

Old video, but, a constant source of ridicule by pilots old and new.
A lot of questions get asked, does the company hold an AoC, do they still hold an AoC, (and yes, to charge someone even a pissy $80 you need an AoC), if they do/did have an AoC, do they understand that there is no way in hell that the flight was legal even if you squint.

We've all do stupid fun things but to allow it to be videoed and put on youtude is just plain dumb. Actually way beyond dumb.
Hand in Pants, I'm thinking, my god, that IS huge!!!!!!!!

This guy is destined to end up in a little ball if not already just hope he does not take anyone with him. Thought i had see everything but surfing cliffs in a R44 is a new one.

I think the most important issue here is that I'm pretty sure it was 100 bucks not 80. Pause it at around 20/21seconds, looks like another hidden 20 behind the first one, also because it looks as though the zero on the 10 is covered over slightly. pop;

I would have soiled my pants at a couple of points if I was there. I'm happy to just watch this on video, thanks.
