Flying traffic patterns over Kona Airport (video)

Here's some video of me flying a helicopter, proof that I'm not making this all up!

I'm doing all the flying in this video, except maybe a little help during the take off. Please note the razor sharp hovering and buttery smooth set down towards the end, a vast improvement over my drunken helicoptering.

By the way, the smoky haze shrouding the volcano in the distance is actually volcanic fog, or "vog" as they call it here in Hawaii. Some days it gets pretty thick.

Nice work Jake! I enjoy reading your blogs and think what you are doing is so neat. See you back in San Diego in a few weeks.

Take care and be safe.
