    Social Media Helicopter Maneuvers, don't confuse skill vs showing off..
    Welcome to day 229 Coffee with Kenny! Today I want to talk a little bit about Social Media take offs and unsafe maneuvers in helicopter piloting. These days in the social media video world, you're seeing a lot of fancy unsafe take offs and pilots showing off. You need to understand that this is not a proper helicopter take off, nor is it safe and it is not what we do in the real world. Helicopters are not designed to do those maneuvers. You have to check systems once you pull up!

    Commercial Pilot Retirement at 60 65, that's an airline thing...
    Welcome to day 227 Coffee with Kenny! Got an email today asking about age limits for Commercial Helicopter Pilots. There are differences in ages for Airline pilots and helicopter pilots! If you have the drive and the dream, go for it! It doesn't matter how old you are as long as you have the passion for flying!

    225 Can I use this for my ground hours? Part 61 and Part 141?
    Welcome to day 225 Coffee with Kenny! We get a lot of questions coming in lately about 61 vs part 141 flight schools. You can use our ground school whether you are going to a part 61 or 141 flight school. However, if you're doing a part 141 you still have to use their ground school because they have to follow their regulations. You can still use HOGS to help you get a jump start and to help you along the way and before check ride! I explain some more in the video!

    Day 223 what is cheapest is not the right focus for flight training!
    Hello, welcome to day 223 Coffee with Kenny. A lot of questions coming in lately are asking what's going to be the cheapest? What's the cheapest option? My answer is that sometimes going for the cheapest route isn't always going to be your best option. Yes, I know we all have financial struggles and looking for ways to save money, but sometimes you get what you pay for. You have to focus on the quality of your instructors, school, aircraft you'll be flying and such.

    222 How much does instructor make from flight school charges?
    We are doing some rearranging in the studio here, getting the new HOGS Wall of Fame rebuilt and some new studio equipment coming that will be even more professional with lighting and some cool new updated videos for the site as well.

    Great question I'm covering today that someone just asked, he is taking out loans to become a helicopter pilot. He questioned how much CFI charge per hour and asked if all the money goes to the instructor or what percentage goes to him and the school. So, I'll explain it a little bit today.
