    Well as the saying goes, admitting you have a problem is the first step...

    Joking aside, how many pilots have flown into hills and mountains etc. because they could not or would not admit they were lost?
    Be alert! America needs more lerts.

    The Ministry of Defence said the pilot had been taking part in a visual orientation exercise
    I wonder if he passed. I say yes, a good pilot will use all the resources available.

    According to my chopper acquaintance, there's broad freedom in when, where and why you may land these things.
