    Yep, that's a couple of really good points. Building is a consideration, and I may look at that down the road. I'm currently watching several different places hoping to pick up a used, but not abused aircraft. The ultralight route is very interesting to me because of the sheer simplicity of the equipment. It's a minimalist way to fly. Lot's of things to consider.

    NICE! Is that a Bell? What's it used for? I've never been in a copter before. Very interesting.

    Yup, Bell 206 Jetranger III. I do a wide variety of work from Forestry, Oil & Gas, Wildfire Suppression, Animal Surveys, Fish Counting, Avalanche Bombing, Tour Flights and even Flight Training. Its kinda the chevy pickup of the industry, it does everything.

    In the foreground is my '08 ss that was a little neglected by the PO, picking away on a few leaks and upgrades.

    That's awesome. There are so many unique uses for helicopters. I like the orange airbox cover and windshield on the bike. I have an 09 Cherry Bomb XB9SX. Luv a Buell. Fly safe brother.
