    I flew in the back of a US Customs Blackhawk once. The pilot got my attention when he turned to the co-pilot and said:

    "Hand me the book of instructions, I've only had four hours in this thing".

    I got his attention when I told him that I'd carved his initials in the first bullet of my Sig 220 so that the Medical Examiner could ID him. I also warned him that if we crashed, he'd hear the click but not the bang......It must have gotten his attention. We landed safely......Damn pilots liked to mess with my mind. I've got a whole bunch of bullets with initials and badge numbers carved in them.

    We are all retired now, so it must have worked,

    ;z The pilot could have easily "pinned you" to the seat with positive G's or pinned you to top of helicopter with negative G's.......

    Actually, all our pilots, even the feds, were very good and in most cases warned me in advance when they were going to make a drastic move.

    Once, while taking video from the RR of a Ranger, I was kneeling on the floor/deck, with no seat belt on, and with the lense sticking out of the window. The pilot, very calmly, said "John, please be seated". I sat down hooked up the seat belt and then he told me that I had been bracing myself with my left hand on the door release when he flipped the copter onto its right side so that I could get a better shot.

    THAT got my attention!

    I dont know about pinning you to the seat or the roof, but I'm pretty sure he could beat you around.

    I've done some stuff like that, had a new LT just out of school join my unit over here, and told him, the first time we took off, just him, another pilot and me, sir, as this is the first time I've flown with you, I'd like to let you know, if I die, I'm haunting you. Didn't quite know how to take it.

    It is pretty scary when your strapped in, and looking out your window, towards the bottom of the bird, you can see the horizon on the other side of the bird.....

    Does 2000 hours in the back as a crewman count?

    since you do more work in the bck than the pilots I'd say so. But then again, I might be a little biased

    2 hours in a Blackhawk sim down at Ft. Carson. Doesn't really count, but a helluva good time (got to land on a carrier and got shotdown a couple times). I've wanted to learn to fly a helicopter ever since. Ah, maybe someday....:supergrin:
