As a helicopter pilot you can experience something. Not only with oneself and the helicopter, but also in general it is always interesting what customers ask, how do flyers react and what other strange things happen in everyday life. Of course, also what other pilots say. We’ve been doing this for a while now and there’s a lot to talk about. At this point we will write some things that we think are worth communicating, knowing and entertaining. We don't want to indulge in technical terms, but rather the world of HelifliegerTo bring the - well - normal pedestrians closer. Without technical jargon, we all already have more than enough in our respective fields. Sure so far? Have fun while reading!

Always this pressure - flying in the heat

Many customers prefer to imagine a squeaky blue sky without a cloud in the sky as ideal weather for sightseeing flights. I have to say that as a helicopter pilot I find that rather boring. Clouds have a certain fascination for me because of the shapes and play of light depending on the amount of sunlight. They look even more interesting up close. Of course, I mean only harmless cumulus clouds and less the sometimes dangerous thunderstorms that [...]

Palina and me

One fine day some time ago the phone rang. It was an agency's turn. Whether the helicopter can be chartered and whether you can film it, they have a project. Now I know that agencies for any film project usually know relatively little about helicopters, what is actually feasible and possible and what is not, but they have a vivid imagination and big ideas. The performances are partly [...]
