    Yeah, it's a "hands on" type of school. It likes sending SF trainees to Afgahnistan for live fire training.

    I have survived my second day of flying and auto-rotations are amazing. Like a kickass rollercoaster with the fear of death involved.

    Seemed to be a 50/50 split in the class about this. Some people, like myself, really liked them, while others looked like they had seen the Grip Reaper face to face.

    I have a few different ways to explain my flying ability as of today. Let me know which you like best. I fly like a duck trying to knit a quilt, or a blind man with Lou Gehrigs disease has better touch than me.
