I distinctly remember the exact moment when I became a Helicopter Pilot………….

It wasn’t the moment when I found myself seriously wondering why I was trying to keep a 6 cylinder, 200 BHP machine in one place 5 feet off the ground .  Nor was it the first time I tried to co-ordinate all three controls at the same time.  And Im sure it wasn’t when the instructor said that I should talk on the radio and handle all three controls.    It could have been the moment when I listened to the air traffic controller giving me all kinds of information that I didn’t quite understand, nor could I remember them.  It definitely wasn’t the moment that I was expected to repeat that information back to the controller.  No, the exact moment happened one morning, after months of training.  I had earned my first solo flight and the whole process of flying one circuit at the airfield, would take maybe 5 minutes.  So I extracted myself from the comfort of having the instructor next to me, gave her the thumbs up and with a brave face prepared for my first take off on my own.  Successfully up in the air with only the tower to talk to and the knowledge that, God forbid,  I now had to land the machine - In the thrill of that moment, I became a helicopter pilot!
