    Flying to Bahamas in a Cessna 172 - 1 Engine vs. 66.6816nm of Water
    Friendly Skies Film



    Published on Jul 21, 2017
    Season 3, Episode 5

    Ever want to just fly away from all your troubles to a tropical paradise? Well, you can with little more than a Cessna 172! Many people don't want to attempt the journey with fewer than two engines, but honestly, I would take on the warm waters of the Bahamas any day rather than the 100ft pine trees and dense woods of Massachusetts.

    Hey, did you guys know that the FAA actually certifies flight instructors to tell you everything that I try to convey in these videos? You should definitely talk to one of them instead of trusting some video you found on the internet, because who am I to tell you how to fly. I'm just a pilot sharing my experiences with the world.

    IS THIS $120 MILLION SUPERSONIC JET THE FUTURE OF COMMERCIAL FLIGHT? || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Jul 23, 2017
    What if you could fly from Hong Kong to Los Angeles in just four hours? On board the Cygnus M3, you’d be able to do just that.

    Created by UK-based innovator Tom Johnson (who was inspired by military bombers from the 1950s and ’60s), the supersonic aircraft concept has a top speed of Mach 3—or 2,000 mph—and features a sleek, svelte structure with variable-geometry wings, which can sweep back and forth while airborne.

    The New Russian MIG-35 During a Demonstration Flight at the MAKS 2017 .

    Published on Jul 20, 2017
    Odo Puiu Events invites you to watch ….
    The New Russian MIG-35 During a Demonstration Flight at the MAKS 2017 .

    MAKS 2017: Kazakhstan in MiG-35 partnership
    Russia’s MiG has announced a MiG-35 production and marketing agreement with state-owned Kazakhstan Engineering.
    Russian Aircraft Corporation “MiG”, part of United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), has signed an agreement with state-owned Kazakhstan Engineering concerning the production of MiG-35 components in Kazakhstan and joint marketing of the aircraft.
    The MiG-35 is one of the stars of the MAKS 2017 air show being held near Moscow from 18th to 23rd July. The accord was announced on 19th July at the show.
    MiG officials see the agreement as a first step towards an order for the multirole combat aircraft, the latest addition to the MiG-29 family. An official presentation ceremony was held by UAC in January at MiG’s Lukhovitsy production site. Several prototypes have been built, and flight testing is currently under way. Officials say they expect a production go-ahead within the next two years.
    Russia has yet to place an order for the MiG-35, but senior Russian Air Force officials have reportedly outlined plans to ultimately replace all MiG-29s currently in service in the Russian Air Force with MiG-35s.
    The MiG-35 is on offer to a number of potential export customers, including India, but the company does not plan to start active marketing campaigns until series production has been launched.

    Maintaining the Piasecki HUP Helicopter 1952 US Navy Training Film; HUP Retriever (H-25 Army Mule)

    Maintaining the Piasecki HUP Helicopter: Rotor Systems and Related Controls: "This film will review the basic procedures for maintaining the two rotor assemblies and related controls of the HUP Service Type helicopter." Produced for the US Navy by Wilding Picture Productions, Inc.

    US Navy Training Film FN-7397b

    Originally a public domain film from the US Navy, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    There is a broadband hum in the vocal frequencies of this film which I cannot completely remove.

    The Piasecki H-25 Army Mule/HUP Retriever was a compact single radial engine, twin overlapping tandem rotor utility helicopter developed by the Piasecki Helicopter Corporation of Morton, Pennsylvania during the late 1940s and produced during the early 1950s. The company changed its name in 1956 to Vertol Aircraft Corporation and subsequently was bought by Boeing Aircraft Company in 1960, and became Boeing-Vertol...

    Design and development

    The design was a product of a competition by the U.S. Navy in 1945 for a compact utility/rescue helicopter to operate from ships including aircraft carriers, battleships, and cruisers. The prototype was designated as the XHJP-1, and first flew in March 1948. It was selected for production, as the HUP-1 in a side-by-side flight evaluation against the Sikorsky XHJS-1. It entered service with the navy in 1949.

    Versions of the HUP built for the U.S. Army were designated H-25 Army Mule. The tandem overlapping rotor configuration was a development by Piasecki and was used in future helicopter designs by the company and successors including the H-21, HRB-1/CH-46, and CH-47.

    The design featured two three-bladed, 35-foot-diameter (11 m) rotors in tandem in which blades could be folded for storage. The HUPs were powered by a single Continental R975-46 radial engine, with a take-off rating of 550 hp (410 kW). To provide rescue without crew assistance, an electrically-operated door, available after folding the copilot’s seat forward, opened through which a rescue sling could be lowered from an overhead winch.

    The HUP was produced for the navy in four versions: HUP-1, -2, and -3. The HUP-2 was the first production helicopter equipped with an auto-pilot. The US Navy also tested a system called 'Raydist that allowed an unmanned HUP-2 to be directed from a ground station and by radio ordered to hover within five feet of the desired point. Edo tested a HUP-2 with a fiberglass hull and outrigger floats for amphibious operations. In addition to those delivered to the U.S. Navy and Army the HUP/H-25 helicopter was also delivered to the Canadian and French Navies. A total of 339 aircraft were delivered over the 20-year life of the aircraft.

    The US Army H-25 designation was adopted by the other services in 1962. The final units were withdrawn from US service in 1964. It also served with the French Navy from 1953 to 1965...

    Sept 6 2017 Flight from Sandy Lake to Sioux Lookout before Thunder Bay
    VE3FAL1_Fred



    Published on Sep 7, 2017
    Just wanted to take you folks on a quick fly back with me from Sandy Lake First Nation to Sioux Lookout and then back to Thunder bay yesterday. The one comment I always get is about how many Lakes there are, the area is full of Lakes and rocks. many of the Lakes are brown due to them being very shallow and clay bottoms. You also see many awesome sand beaches along the way. How do y'all like that heart shaped lake? Check out the grooves in the runways from planes landing and turning....

    In the late 1960s, the USSR debuted what appeared to be the world’s deadliest fighter. The MiG-25 (NATO term “Foxbat”) could outrun any fighter in the air, and indeed any military aircraft other than the SR-71 Blackbird.
