    Nov 18, 2008, 10:14 AM - Military Flight Helmet #1

    Since I am getting ready to head over to Afghanistan I figured some would get a kick out of my helicopter flight helmet, modeled by my son, that I have used since 98.

    Love it! I wanted to fly choppers in the 80's, recruiter said no after 3 runs on the ASVAB placed me as an electrician. What do you fly?

    Awesome...I too wanted and tried to enlist in the Marine Corps Reserves in the of becoming a chopper pilot but some medical conditions kept me out.

    I'm still considering going to helicopter school here in Orlando, FL. There is a great demand for pilots!

    Be safe bro!

    Super sick bucket!!!

    that is too cool!! Ilove the emblems on the top of the bucket.

    is that allowed though? I mean... it;s not really a "uni-form" now in comparisson to your colleauges right?

    ah yes suped-up jet ranger. I was so amped about the Apache when it went into to service. It was that or Chinooks. I'd probably be living at Ft. Rucker today. Be safe over there, and thank you for all you do for our country bud!
