Helicopter Lessons by John Beffingfoot - Wed, 02 Nov 2016 12:26:45 EST ID:8cs50XFD No.34429 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Anyone here got any experience with having helicopter lessons? I live in the UK and looking into getting lessons next year, just wondered if anyone else here had done the same or has a license and can answer a few questions:
Was it worth the money, in your opinion?
Was it easy to organise, like was there a load of bullshit to go through or was it basically get in and go sort of thing?
Also, if you have a licence do you find it easy to find work with it? Thinking about private contracts long term but short term air ambulance work. Is it worthwhile in your opinion?

Looked back a few pages and didn't see a thread on this. Post mechanical problems you're unsure how to diagnose and/or fix and we can try to help each other.

I'll start: A couple of days ago my car started giving off a rattling sound, either in or below the engine block or at least near it. It only starts rattling when I'm maintaining a speed or initially upon deceleration. Doesn't matter what gear I'm in, doesn't make the sound while idle. I'm hoping something minor is loose, but I fear the worst.

my car used to make a rattling sound cause the clutch that engages the ac motor was just a mm off.

sound more like a ringing to me then a rattle. like two plates spinning and touching ever so slightly. the mechanic pointed out ehe fine metal dust to me.

I checked after you brought this up, my suspension is fine.
Turns out it was my radiator support rattling around. I knew it was damaged but not that bad. Months ago some fuckhead was going like 90mph weaving around with nothing tied down to the bed of his truck. A box tumbles out and I'm the lucky bastard who gets to receive it. Managed to avoid a windshield hit but it smashed into the drivers side part of the bumper. I had used zip ties to put the support back up but I guess the damage was more extensive and/or a pothole knocked it loose again.

Also my cv axles were shot and I have an exhaust leak so that could have made the rattle more pronounced.

Just doubled up on zip ties and replaced the axles, will deal with the leak when I can afford it. I'm not getting lungs full of fumes and my car drives fine for now so that can wait

My friend and I are newly arrived masters students in the fine German city of Düsseldorf, and we had just rented a nice BMW, and are planning to take a nice road trip to a more authentic part of this very beautiful country. As i know the Autobahn is under constant construction, i was wondering which way to drive has less construction, less traffic jams and more " no speed limit" allowance. Our 2 desired destinations are München, and Berlin. Kindly help us make the better choice.

You're generally paid to be there, housing and return flights are standard on pretty much any contract where you're hired overseas in a professional position, this usually has a lot do with visa requirements, most countries are not immigration friendly as western europe/north america (in a lot of jurisdictions your employer is your guarantor and on the hook if you get into shenanigans). Going anywhere legally without some in demand-quals (STEM) or having a job a priori isn't possible unless you're backpacking and doing donkey work under the table, paid at local rates (i.e. fuck all)...teaching english and some kinds of hospitality work are viable, especially in Asia, but not what the OP was looking for

Hey 420chan,
I am planning on traveling to Boulder and Colorado generally around the time of 4/20 in a little over a week. I have never been to Colorado and am hoping to make the most of my experience. Any places, shops, events that I should check out while I'm there? Very excited to see the promised land of legality...

Obviously it's the capital of Washington but the population is growing and estimated at 50,302. Friendly people I'm assuming that would be something for you to find out or someone from the city to tell you. If you're looking for a one bed, one bath apartment for under $800 a month you're in luck. Public transit is Intercity Transit for buses, which in 2009 the American Public Transportation Association gave Intercity Transit the America's Best Public Transportation System award for the mid-size category so seems good. For rail it's just Amtrak. But yeah there you go.

I lived there for about 6 years. All of my neighbors were Military stationed at Fort Lewis, so my neighbors changed alot so I never really got to know any of them very well. It's a nice place.

Public transportation was so cheap that I could go to either Portland or Seattle barley breaking a 10 dollar bill.

I'm in the USAF and I hate it and I've always hated the US. The decisions I've made are entirely out of necessity. I am currently working as a flight line mechanic. I am married. I want to move to Denmark because that country looks just so nice. Me and my wife are both dead set on moving to Denmark. How is that done? What opportunities might I have? Should I learn to speak their language? I just need all the info please. I got about three years until I can get out of the military. In the meantime should should I get a college degree? What should be my focus?

Don't know much about moving there, but I work as a tour guide and met people from all over the world.
In general I've found all the Scandinavian countries to be very competent and speaking English, other than a handful of elderly people I've met. I don't think it's quite as extreme as Berlin is, where you can get by not knowing any German, but it would obviously be polite to learn, AFAIK danish is the most difficult of them though, so best of luck!
Denmark is also one of those countries where most people live in the capital, by quite a large margin. I just googled it there and Copenhagen has a population of 1,153,615 and the next closest to that is Aarhus, with 237,551. So pretty much everyone is in Copanhagen which means it must also be the most international city that Denmark has, making it the easiest one to move to.

The only real advice I can give you is for you to go through with it though. Think about it. Start saving up money now, and by the time you leave the airforce you're be rich as fuck. Use the money to go traveling through Europe. Start in portugal, make your way through spain, france, switzerland, italy, through to croatia, up the czech republic, poland, then into germany and finally up to Denmark. That's how to do it.

Dane here.
Most Danes, especially the younger generation, speak English very well, but you can take classes to learn the language for free if you live here I think. Generally the living cost is high compared to the US, you pay a lot of taxes off of whatever you buy, and getting an apartment or house in any of the bigger cities is costly and very hard without having been on a waiting list for years or 'knowing someone'.

A college degree is a good idea, but maybe take it in Denmark if possible, I know plenty exchange students who don't know any danish attending their classes with no problems (they are carried out in English of course) If you are a student you will have a much easier time finding somewhere to live in the city. If you get a college degree either go for something teacher related or natural science.

Or you could move to the country, or live on one of the less populated islands like Samsø.

OK, I moved to Ohio from bumfuck-Nowhere TN(near Memphis) to escape that shit life. It's been ok, but I've always wanted to live in a few different states. My best friend up here is a struggling(but great) artist who wants move to either Northern California or Austin Texas so he has more opportunities to pursue his chosen career path. He wants to move with someone to make it less expensive. The thing is I finished my little certificate education here and have nothing of importance keeping me here. I'm leaning toward a yes.

I'm familiar with Texas as in a decent amount of it's laws, culture, and what not. California however is a little alien to me. We all get this "CALIFORNIA"™ image from the media, but what's it really like? My understanding is that it's like HYPER-liberal, lots of self-obsessed and superficial people, over-populated, and expensive. I've heard that Nor-Cal is a little different, but what are the general CA laws like? What's the culture in Nor-Cal? Do you need a very good job in order to not slip into poverty? I don't want to join my friend to a disastrous trip.

Haha, maybe... . I moved to Cleveland from TN, and I've really liked it because it's very different. More cosmopolitan, met many different kinds of people here, and the city itself had more amenities(an actual public transit, good museums, ect). It's not that I have anything against liberals or anything; I just don't like a lot of bureaucracy and taxes(consider myself more of a libertarian-type). The cool things about Cali which I will probably like would be weed is legal, every type of person you could imagine is there, and my friend said car tags can be renewed for like 5 years.
