Get To The ChoppA!

Arnold may have said it first, but for the occasion it seems appropriate.

You see, for Christmas this year I received a gift on a scale I could not have fathomed. This gift, the brain child of my amazing girlfriend Tiffany, was a 30 minute hands-on ride in a helicopter. Yes, you read that correctly, hands-on. I. GOT. TO. PILOT. A. HELICOPTER! 

The Helicopter

Alright, so you're probably wondering who, on Earth, would let me pilot a helicopter? And the answer is, the guys over at C-R Helicopters in Nashua, NH. The day of my impending doom flight, I was to show up and receive a brief (30 minute) ground school training and then would be off to skies to enjoy my moment.
