Video: Picking up friends from their backyard in a helicopter

1

Helicopter pilots talk about freedom a lot, especially the freedom to take off and land from almost anywhere. This video is a great example, as two pilots stop by a friend’s house on the way to a famous BBQ restaurant – in a helicopter. Watch their careful planning, the backyard landing, and then the arrival at the Salt Lick. So much more fun than driving.
