HeliVenture takes flight Print

OO-HEYPaul Bossens, and Pete Koekelkoren flew a Robinson R-44 Clipper II (OO-HEY) from Brussels, Belgium to 2010 Oshkosh for the airshow and then on to Los Angeles.  The trip covered more than 9,000 nm, flown over about a month in the summer of 2010.

They made it to LA August 8, 2010.  This was their second attempt at the transtlantic trip.  They started out with the HeliVenture group of helicopters in the summer of 2007 that made the trip to Oshkosh in celebration of the 100th anniversary of helicopter flight in France. Unfortunately, Paul and company had to give up in Iceland due to a technical program.  But this year they made it, including a couple of days flying around the Los Angeles area.
