Never flown on a helicopter, all air transport has always been on fixed-wing aircraft for me.

Several variants. Will be honest, I don't really pay attention to helicopters.

Mil-6 is one I've definitely flown on, and I only remember because it sounds similar to "Mig15" which I have also flown on a few times.

Bell 206 Longranger. My brother worked for PHI back in the 80's and got permission to take me offshore in the Gulf of Mexico one day. It was an experience I'll never forget. I've been on three planes with him in his 40+ year flying career. When he first got his fixed wing license in 1977, he took me up in a Cessna 150 at Ft Ord, CA. Then I had the copter ride out of Houma, LA. He's retiring this July so last October I did a DTW-LAS roundtrip in a A320 with him as the captain.

Mil Mi-8T x3 (all on the same frame)
AW139 x2 (both on the same frame)

Two very different helicopters and flying experiences. I was very impressed by how stable and sturdy the Mi-8 feels, a true workhorse of a heli.

Very easy to answer - none. All fixed wing flying for me- so far anyway.
