Much to my disappointment, I discovered that no matter how much you love flying a police helicopter, the day will come when you either have to stop, want to stop, or stopping becomes the lesser of other evils. (Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.) Once I began keeping score, I discovered that law enforcement aviators were like all other police personnel contemplating retirement. The first group is...

By Andrew Parker, Senior Editor Torrance, Calif.-based Robinson Helicopter is coming off a “pretty good” year, producing 162 helicopters in 2010.

The past two presidents of HAI, Roy Resavage and Matt Zuccaro, must be complimented for promoting a balanced approach to public aircraft operators. In the early 90’s some of the folks in HAI were … less than gracious to public aircraft operators. It was during this time of “the troubles” as the Irish would call them, that a meeting attended by public aircraft operators and...
