Upside-down helicopter ride

May 2, 2011 by Dave Hirschman, Senior Editor

Nothing in my flying experience prepared me for flying with Red Bull’s Chuck Aaron, the only helicopter pilot approved by the FAA for low-level aerobatic helicopter demonstrations.

Our short flight on Friday, April 29, included loops and rolls — familiar maneuvers in fixed-wing aircraft — but totally foreign in a helicopter.

Look for a far more detailed article in a future edition of AOPA Pilot magazine.
