Default 360 degrees real UH-1H flight video BlackSharkDen

Hi guys,

Our annual Back Shark Den meeting 2018 was held near Hampton GA, at the Army Aviation Heritage foundation on Henry country airport. We rent a 1968 Huey UH-1H for a spin. It was a complete blast! Our pilot was a Vietnam veteran with a lot of combat experience and we spent the entire day, along with all the really kind volunteers at AAHF asking all the questions we ever wanted to ask to real life Huey pilots.
The first video of this meeting is a 360 degrees one shot on a GoPro fusion we installed inside the cockpit. Check out the full startup procedure and the flow that goes with it. Real pro stuff. Also, our pilots were kind enough to demonstrate all the questions we had about the Huey: EGT, OGE, IGE, ETL, pattern... It was just awesome. Many more videos to come of the unforgettablel day with AAHF.

That was the best weekend I've had in a long time. I got to meet the guys I've been flying with for years and got to ride in a Huey. The people at AAHF were just amazing. They spent most of Saturday with us, letting us climb all through the Huey and the Cobras. Great day with good friends!

It was definitely steadier and smoother, I can say that.

It was also faster as well. Even with nine people in it.

We didn't fly in them (yet) but they have THREE AH-1S Cobras there.

With this coming out in DCS, a trip to AAHF becomes even more compelling.

They were also very interested in DCS and will probably be setting up a simulator there. They asked us a lot of questions as well.

If you are into these aircraft and not too far away it would be stupid not to come visit this fantastic place. If you are into the aircraft and ask a lot of technical questions, they will start talking and will keep going until long after you are out of the driveway.

Buy a Tee shirt or a Hat and help keep these historic and awesome aircraft flying. On the maintenance side they had a Huey and a Cobra getting rebuilt/worked on.

Great video! indeed the Huey looked faster than in the sim, i think it looks more submissive because IRL the pilot has seat of the pants feel.

Really enjoyed this video, thanks for posting.

Hey you're welcome!

Yes, we got some shots from inside the cockpit during the flight that I still have to edit. We were flying happily around 110kt with 2 pilots and BSD staff on board and we were nowhere close to max torque/EGT. The Huey's engine in DCS is usually blowing up at this speed.
