My good friend Jim Flippen is a wonderful Pilot. I have never seen anyone with more passion about flying as Jim. He LOVES it! I love to hear his stories about being a helicopter pilot during Vietnam and about his work as a commercial pilot for many years. This guy has some great stories and great experiences in the air. A couple of years ago I went out and recorded his Dec 1945 Aeronca 7AC Champ Trainer Plane. We did some start up and idle sounds and some flyovers. For the recording I used a Tascam DR60mkII along with a Sennheiser MKE600 Shotgun. Turned out great! Thanks Jim! Can't wait to record your new helicopter.
Here's a link to one of the recordings: Small Airplane Start Up & Run Idle
