The Alps 2012

We have just returned from a fantastic two ship trip to the French Alps. Based at the Altiport at Megève for just over a week. We were joined by a number of Aeromega clients for some altitude appreciation flying which included the beautiful lakes at Annecy and Chambéry as well as practice approaches and landings at the Courchevel Altiport.

For a sample of the flying watch Ali’s video.

For a number of years Aeromega Helicopters have been one of very few operators accompanying adventurous helicopter licence holders deep into the French Alps to teach students about the hazards and rewards of flying in the mountains.

I just returned from an unforgettable trip combining instructing and filming in the mountains to share the pleasure with you all.

Flying in mountainous terrain has serious associated hazards such as limited power, localised mountain weather, up/down-draughting air, and human performance factors to name a few, however when approached with maximum regard to safety the rewards are simply mind-blowing and something that all pilots with a penchant for adventure and exploration should experience. We welcome anyone interested in flying to the mountains who would benefit from the reassurance of an experienced safety pilot to get in touch. Our instructors provide pre-flight briefings, local knowledge of the area and it’s altiports, sightseeing tips, and most importantly advice relating to safety of the aircraft and it’s occupants. Needless to say we also enjoy relaxing to a good meal and the excited recounts of experiences after a successful days flying.
