Flying itself is already awesome, but if one is able to tell the pilot what to do and where to go, things get real fun. Fear of heights or of loosing equipment are no-goes. Sometime exciting manoeuvres are necessary to get parts of the heli out of the way or to shoot straight down on the subject. My focus had to be spot on when we dove left only 15m above the ground. Picture yourself sitting on that side of the chopper with no door. Now you give order to dive and your left side becomes the view straight down on the ground. Your tummy feels crazy and you’ve about ONE second to get the shot, before the pilot has to counter balance the heli again. With great fun comes great responsibility.
