子供の頃に『空とぶじゅうたん』の話を読んでもらって以来、「空を飛びたい」という思いがあり ました。 その後、大戦の最中に迎えた少年期は、身近に飛行機乗りが何人かいて、かなり感化されておりました。『きけ わだつみのこえ』に出てくる上原良司は、叔父に あたり、その姿は小学生の私には眩しい限りで、実にカッコイイ存在でした。 何よりも、松本は民間航空機のメッカで、河川敷で飯沼飛行士の先生のような人が飛んでいたんです。それに松 本市内から現在の松本空港のある神林あたりまで は、戦争中に三菱をはじめ飛行機メーカーが疎開企業として全国から集まっていました。だからいまだにポンコ ツのプロペラがそこらへんに落ちていたりしま す。そんな影響もあり、私は小さい頃から飛行機乗りが憧れで、飛行機は身近な存在、小さな頃から「自由に空 を飛びたい」と強く思っておりました。
hahaha! how true!! couldnt've said it better myself

There was a kid since I got read the story of the "Flying Carpet", "I want to fly in the sky". Then, reached boyhood in the midst of war, what people write is close to plane ride, we are quite inspired. Ryoji Uehara come out to "hear the voice of Wadatsumi", per the uncle, appearance is dazzling me as far as elementary school, there was really cool. Matsumoto is the Mecca of commercial aircraft, such as the teacher of human astronauts in the riverbed is Iinuma I was flying, more than anything. Until the current per Kambayashi from the city of Matsumoto Matsumoto Airport, the airplane manufacturer had gathered from all over the country as a company Mitsubishi evacuated during the war it started. The striped or has strangely fallen so still so (bad word for scoa) propeller. We thought there was also strongly influence such, I will ride in an airplane from my childhood longing, the plane a familiar presence, since I was little, "I want to fly freely."

You don't want to fly that thing any higher than you are willing to fall. Being coaxial (2 counter-rotating blades) it has no ability to auto-rotate. If the engine(s) quit, look straight down, because that's where you'll be in a painful heap after your free-fall. You can dead-stick in and glide with most planes, helicopters and gyros and survive, but not this one. Nice toy, but not for anything over about 10 ft. high.

^^^^The helmet certainly seems pointless then. LOL

I forgot which comedian had a bit about skydivers who wear helmets, when it's really their helmets that are wearing them.

It says, "they have attached a parachute above the mast just in case."

Being coaxial isn’t what prevents it from autorotation it’s the fixed pitch
that would prevent autorotation.

A gyroplane has fixed-pitch rotor blades and I've autoroted numerous times :eek:, but usually on purpose for practice. I have close to 800 hours in gyros.
