And you saw the photo I posted a little earlier?  Here is the amazing Embrace sculpture as they burned it down 3 days later.

Not many people are as lucky as I was to fly over central London in the sunset. What a magical last flight to finish my training with Paul and +FlyingPigHelicopters. Having just completed my check ride in Switzerland yesterday, on to new adventures!

My Qualifying Cross Country Helicopter Flight. What a beautiful day!

Some people had problems with watching it on YouTube, let's hope this works better.

In August 1994, my dad built this helicopter behind our chalet in Gspon in the Swiss Alps. Most people believed that it never actually worked, that it was just a little boy playing. Today, 20 years later, it turns out the helicopter could not have worked more beautifully. The boy wasn't simply playing, he was practicing... In my imagination, I was flying all along.

Thank you, dad!
