Re: Kobe Bryant killed in a helicopter crash

If stuck in the clouds couldn't the pilot simply ascended up the through the clouds until he was in the clear notifying ATC while doing this? That is the safest route, and the one taught for inadvertent IMC. All this jibber jabber about hovering and turning and slowing down is all useful while stil...

Re: Kobe Bryant killed in a helicopter crash

Let’s see. I am flying along the 101 and it gets real foggy in front of me. Can’t helicopters just stop, do a 180, and retrace your steps? Why make 2 left turns to do the same thing? You assume the two left turns were done purposely. I would assume both turns, but more assuredly the second left tur...
