Default How I Flew a Huey in Arizona

Our project manager, Alex "PilotMi8" Podvoyskiy, was recently a very lucky and no doubt one of very few Russian military helicopter pilots who had an amazing opportunity to get behind the controls of an American Huey. Having spent so much time working on the DCS Huey model over the past couple of years, needless to say it was an experience he massively enjoyed and relished. Here is his story of the experience.

That was a really nice read. Thank you for this feedback.

From the start, when I saw the pic of the Huey in the hanger on that platform I immediately asked myself how they got it on there
Safe 400-600 I need a bit more space than that between me and the ground hehe

Keep up the good work!
