After a professional builder constructed their Rotorway
Exec 162F this Father and his sons hired Orv to travel to their
location in Texas to teach them how to fly it. They kept their flight
instructor busy with eight hours of flight training every day. They
put over 60 hours on the helicopter and the only mechanical problem
they had was a leaking water pump seal. Orv quickly showed them
how to replace that and they were back in the air in short order.
