    Question When someone is landing......

    When someone is landing do you go by faith and stay in until you get to the ground or do you parachute when they start the descent? Jbiggs and someone else was in a Blackhawk with me in lost village and the other guy hopped out when i started out landing. Makes ya wonder if people doubt your flying skills lol.

    Depends on the distance from the closest mountain, tree, or rock

    I just hop out. I figure, if the chopper has weapons, the pilot can get back to covering me more quickly as I cap a flag.

    depends on the pilot...if, ive flown with em before and remember their skillz...
    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    If I'm flying, jump out.

    Anyone else, if it starts to land and it's shaky. I jump out.

    If Meggie is flying I don't get in at all.



    If I'm flying I stay in till I land. Especially if there are passengers onboard. Pisses me off when the pilot bails on a helo before the passengers.


    Depends on the pilot in other circumstances. I can hear by the sound the helo makes whether or not the pilot knows what they are doing. I use the sound and what the helo is doing in the air to judge.
    Respect it.
