New Here - Hello

Hi to all who may read this. My name is Brian and I currently live in Arizona learning to fly helicopters. I enjoy this very much but learning to sail has been a passion of mine since a child. I just want to introduce myself and say hello to all! The reason I joined this site is learn more about sailing.

Also, I hope to be moving to Hawaii soon to fly helicopters over there and I was hoping to find someone who may be sailing that way this summer with room for myself and girlfriend. It may sound naive, but we have the will to learn! Thanks everybody!

I used to fly attack helicopters out there for the Army up until a couple years ago. I am moving back in August and will be bringing my Catalina 36 out there next summer. Send me a PM some time.

Good luck on your voyage to Hawaii.

I fly out of the Scottsdale Airport to go up to the Indian reservations. But not on helicopters. We use King Air 200, Barrons, and Conquests. I see lots of activity on the north end of the runway where they are training people of fly helicopters.
