Yes it was. he has his CFI and even offered me free instruction. It may have not been a 100% altruistic. I think he wants to have some backup pilots in the company to help follow their off-road racing trucks.


I did think of the secondary pilot benefit for the company. Still a very nice offer.

THAT is dangerous. VFR at day probably, so its likely safe but currency is important.


I think helo's are dangerous to begin with. When they do the big truck races like the Baja 1000 etc, there are lots of teams that have them flying around the course. You definitely need to pay attention because there isn't any real air traffic control involved.
